Good Morning and Happy Veterans Day lovelies! Hopefully everyone has the day off and can honor the Vets in your life. Today I am featuring a little DIY project that kept me busy this weekend. I love the cap toe trend and considering I am on a spending freeze I thought I would get creative and attempt to dye one of my many pairs of suede shoes. **Stay tuned later this week for how I paired these bad boys**
To begin chose your shoe. I chose suede because it absorbs fabric paint the best. (Says Joan, the woman at Michael’s who helped me buy my supplies)
I am not a huge craft person. I love that this project only consists of 5 things besides the shoes…Fabric paint, tape, paintbrush, paper towels, and old newspaper/bag/magazines for underneath the shoe:
Tape paper towels on both shoes to prevent spillage and to ensure you get a nice, even, smooth line. Now you’re ready to start painting. I applied 3 coats of a black sparkle paint.Allow to dry for about 30 minutes then remove the tape!
I love how they came out and I am considering getting a gold colored paint and adding a small gold stripe where the black and blue meet.Have you tried any DIY projects lately? Do tell! I want to start doing more projects like this. Have a great Monday!
OMG I literally have had THE best 24 hours of my life and it has nothing to do with fashion, clothes, vintage items, or anything of the sort. My Dapper Fellow was out of town this weekend and in true Beezie fashion my bests all came together for one last hoorah. E is moving to NYC and we are unsure when we will see her again so it was the most amazing surprise of 2012!!! On Saturday we went grocery/craft shopping and literally did an entire evening of DIY, bedazzling, spray painting, etc. We had so much fun and were beyond crafty for the entire weekend! Here is my Savory Sunday as well as an added bonus of our DIY projects…
E and I ventured out to Brosenbrus in Tempe, AZ for breakfast this am and we were very happy with our choice! Brosenbrus is a local cafe/restaurant in Tempe, AZ and they have a great variety of breakfast and lunch! It is owned by two best friends and you can feel that comradery once you enter the establishment!
I got the Diablo Sandwich which was exactly as I would think it would be…SPICEY! So good tho.
E and I also did our fair share in DIY projects this weekend which included spray painting and bedazzling pumpkins and spray painting lamps!!!! Here are our creations…
Hope all of you lovelies had a fab wkd!
