Silver Pumps

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Not too shabby, but pretty ordinary pair of white pumps, with a stain on one shoe, $3.

Problem solved, inspired by a craft project in Nuno magazine....


(striped elastic covered with masking tape)







A nice pair of metallic summer flats. Stain? Gone.

Great DIY - the metallic is so cool and a perfect neutral!

those are really cool. But I though pumps were heels?

LOVE LOVE LOVE these! What a great idea.

I've got a pair of Kenneth Cole heels I thrifted and am going to try to dye for a new look. Hope my shoes turn out as good as yours!!

@MrsWardy88 Oh that's a good question. Pumps - heels vs flat. I've always thought of pumps as flat shoes, here is what I found on wikipedia:

Outside the fashion trade in the UK, the term "pumps" would normally imply flat or low-heel dancing or ballerina pumps, or even rubber-soled canvas plimsolls.
