I've been paint on and off for two weeks and finally they are done! I've had these shoes for a while and they are the comfiest heels ever! But the heels had become scuffed after being my go-to heel for the past two or three years. After picking up a similar looking heel at the thrift store for two bucks I finally plucked up the courage to risk ruining my favorite shoes. But I didn't ruin them and personally I think they look fabulous considering my poor painting skills.

I painted them using acrylic paint. Afterward I sprayed it with a seal. I'm all about fixing things instead of replacing them, so the the paint is partly functional. I'll definitely wear these a lot longer painted than if the scuffs got worse. They were starting to look a little worn out.

Wow - they look awesome!
I especially like the anchor with the wave and the strawberries!

What a great idea to paint them instead of throwing them away!

Love, love, LOVE these.  Already hit "This Rocks".  I would love to do this, but I'd be terrified of ruining my hard work and scuff them up!

I'm a bit worried too. This project took way more time than I expected so I'd hate it being messed up but I can always fix them, plus some Art isn't meant to last.
