Want the look of new shoes without the cost? I didn't feel like spending another $60 for a new pair that would probably get ruined in a matter of months and I really wanted to have a pair of white shoes that i wouldn't worry so much about getting dirty.
This instructable will show you how to revamp those old shoes for a new look. And for just around $5, its the perfect solution for an empty wallet and the kid who doesn't like to get rid of old, ugly shoes.
Step 1: Materials
Small Paint Brushes
Palette or something to mix paint on
Acrylic Paint (color of choice)
Fabric Painting Medium*
Household Cleaner Spray or Cleaning Wipes**
+ bleach or ajax to clean white laces
You can easily get the paint and paint brushes at any craft store for about $5 altogether.
*Make sure that you get enough bottles of paint and mixing medium for the project. Its usually a 2:1 paint to medium ratio. 1 bottle of each ended up being enough for me though.
**The spray/ wipes are just to clean the shoes a little before painting so that the paint goes on smoother and with less coats.
