Painted Cowboy Boots

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Remember a pair of cowboy boots I 'exchanged' from The Clothing Exchange? Classic 'western' black boots, but embroidered with garish light brown stitching:

No matter, this is easily fixed by using some of Mr's black shoe polish from the cupboard..

One coat not quite enough:

There we go, two coats much better:

Although perhaps readers, I should have opted for some acrylic paint and a paintbrush to decorate my boots with a food consumer label, as British fashion designer Ashish demonstrated with his fast food cowboy boots as seen on London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011. Cowboy boots decorated with McDonald’s fries, Coca Cola, and burgers no less.. fashionably ironic?!!

hmm, maybe I should have grabbed those boots after all! I think my brain was dead after all my crafting that night!

Wow that's a great idea! They look great all black.

Wow, what an improvement the black makes. I never would have thought to do this! Hope you had a great weekend. Michelle

Great work on the boots, they look so smart and new and what a simple idea. I do like the other cowboy boots but only in the heinz beans design, as reminds me of a Littlewoods breakfast!
