If a pair of red-soled shoes suddenly appeared on our doorstep, Gwyneth and I would be happy to give them a good home. But let’s be honest – we’d really rather have a pink-soled pair. We shopped our closet, did a quick DIY, and now we do.
If your budget can cover spraypaint and painter’s tape, then you too can revamp a pair of heels you already own in your own signature color. Here’s how we did it:
First, we found a pair of shoes that we thought might be good candidates for a little hot pink revamping.
Then Gwyneth reminded me that DIYs sometimes can be risky. “If you ruin these shoes, it is going to ruin your day?” she asked me.
Since we were pleased with how our DIY Glitter Booties turned out, and these heels were purchased three years ago at Nine West, we decided to give it a shot. We taped the shoes so only the soles were exposed and gave them a quick hit of Rust-Oleum Multi Purpose Spray Paint in Berry Pink.
