Picture of My DIY Refashioned Cowboy Boots

Unfortunately the faux leather started to peel away from those second hand beauties so they were put out to pasture until I could come up with a fix to get them back in rotation.

Snagged my jar of brown buttons and stitched a few over the remaining shabby areas + a few more for extra fanciness!
