Have you ever painted shoes?
This may be a first for me!
Okay, maybe I’ve painted thrift store shoes
to match a costume for a play or Halloween.
But, a pair of brand new TOMS that cost around $44.00?
One of my older daughter’s friends brought the TOMS to me
and asked if I would paint them.
He wanted to give them to her as a birthday present!
Seems she had mentioned how she’d like to have a pair
that were custom painted!
This is the same daughter who spray painted
a pair of cowboy boots SILVER!!
AND WORE THEM!!!
Here they are in they’re pristine new condition.
I had NO idea how she wanted these painted! So we gave up
on the idea of it being a secret and showed her the shoes!
She was very excited and promptly brought me this
collage of all the designs and a list of colors
she’d like to have on the shoes!
Needless to say,
all her choices didn’t make it!
So, after a few weeks of being a “chicken” about
painting on these shoes, I finally took the plunge
and drew out a design.
Using regular craft paints I started in.
Actually, once I started painting it went pretty fast.
One of the choices she had included was the scripture
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
I have to admit I like the way the painting turned out
better than my writing.
But she wanted a HAND PAINTED look and
that’s what she got!
She asked for WINGS on the heels.
Zebra on one side and the scripture on the other.
And flowers and swirls across the front!
KaKa is her nickname, hence the K’s.
Now I can add “Shoe Painter” to my resume!
Have a Colorfully Blessed Day!
