About Me

I started this blog at the urging of my AK friends to help relay my moving to WA. I'm hoping this blog will evolve into a place where I share my home-decorating/remodeling, craft projects, and adventures in dog-ownership.

Thanks for reading!!

It was time.  I've been drooling over turquoise shoes for a while. They were following me everywhere...


They were everywhere, and then I found these links...
And similar links, and since I love spray painting I decided to take my black shoes and make them less practical but more fun!!

The materials: shoes, amazing turquoise spray paint, cardboard to paint on, and (not in photo) painters tape and old rags to cover surfaces not painting.
Covered the sole- well the part that touches the ground
Stuffed with rags, and more tape, ready for PAINT!!

After first coat of paint, decided for a 2nd coat just to be sure.
Ta Da!!!
I'm very happy with them, I like that the black stitching stayed black, contrast is always good. I'll see how they hold up, I have some wedding dancing plans for them.
