We’re definitely not in Kansas anymore. A while back I read about this project on A Beautiful Mess and was intrigued. Since I’m one who’s propensity to take on more than I realistically should sometimes gets me in trouble I found myself hesitant to officially commit.
One baby step at a time moved me forward onto the path of completion. I was inspired by these gold shoes. I’d wanted a pair of silvery shoes or boots for a while. These ankle boots were in the bag going to Out of The Closet when I saved them just in the nick of time. They’re made very well, the sole and last are still in perfect condition and they were pricey because they accommodate custom orthotics. However, several winters of daily wear and tear on San Francisco’s streets and sidewalks eventually tore and scratched much of the leather.
Harkening back to my Bowie days, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. First, I coated them in a metallic indoor/outdoor bronze paint. Afterwards, they got several coats of magical glitter spray paint. Magical really is the name of the color, I’m not being fancy.
I expect them to crack a bit and get rugged. That’s the kind of rock star character I want for these beauties. What’s left to say besides this?
Last night kicked off the first monthly craft night that my friends and I put together. Knitting needles came out, lessons were given, buttons were secured back on and I officially started on the infinity scarf I’m giving away. This Wednesday I will be announcing the winner of my first ever giveaway. Check back to see who the lucky guy or gal is!
