In the meantime, I just painted another pair of shoes I found at a thrift store.
Here is how they look before...
There is something about shoes that I usually stay away from. If I decided to buy, it has to look brand new or very close to brand new. On top of that it has to be the right size, right style, right height (with my prosthetic it has to have a heel 1 1/2" or less), what are the odds of finding a pair that qualify based on those standards???
I was at a thrift store the other day, and found such shoes, can you believe it?
When I first looked at them, I thought "!!!!!".
Then when I took a second look I thought "It looks a little granny-ish..."
It wasn't until the third glance that I saw the potential.
I have been wanting to have two tone shoes, I decided that these shoes are a perfect candidate for them!
In the picture, the main part looks more like light beige, but it is actually light gray. I went back and forth if I should do gray + peachy orange or gray + mint green. When I looked in my closet, I noticed that I have some mint green clothes... I decided to go with that. After I painted them with gray + mint green, I felt like still there was something missing. After thinking it over for sometime, I decided to add a line of gold. Than I thought "YES!".
