A few months (weeks) back I bought a few pairs of shoes from Asos so I could craft them into more exciting versions of themselves. First, I made the J.Crew inspired gold loafer. Then, the neon tipped pair. This weekend, I made this rad pair of Cole Haan inspired brogues.
Here is the original pair:
You can buy these for a cool $178.00 from Zappos. Or, you could go with the crafty route and save yourself a good hundred bucks. Crafting win!
1. Brogues from Asos.
2. Martha Stewart craft paint from Michael's.
3. A small paint brush from Michael's.
4. An extra extra extra small paint brush from Michael's.
Paint the soles of the shoes. You may need a couple of layers.
Paint the edges of the shoes.
Use the extra extra extra small brush to paint in the holes. Be careful not to get paint outside of the holes.
I'm excited to take my lady-brogues out for a stroll. I wish I could make these in so many different colors.
What do you think?! Don't you love them! I know I do. So hard.
love hate to say it, but I kind of think mine look better than the Cole Haan version. Sorry, Cole. My shades of pink and tan just work. Suck it.
