My sisters birthday was last Monday and I've had these heels laying around for a while.  I bought them years ago for a Murder Mystery party and never wore them again.  She's all into the Rockabilly thing and she's always showing me shoes that she wants.  I decided I could come up with something to do with these since I'm a broke bastard and can't afford to buy any of the ones she want.

I splattered the paint on them on my roof (i live on the third floor so I don't have a porch but my fire escape door leads right onto the roof) and it seriously looked like a massacre out there and it still does!  After letting the paint dry, I sprayed some sealer on them and then added these bows to the back.  I have a pair of heels with black bows on the back which she loves so I figured these would be a nice touch.

View of the massacre, I probably should have put down more paper  Roll Eyes

Messiest project I've done in a loooong while

Thanks for looking...she LOVED them.

They're amazing!  Anytime I try to spatter paint something I get so carried away, I end up over doing it.

Those are so awesome! I wish I could wear heels. The hubbs and I are the same height, and if I'm in heels, it makes me taller, and he doesn't much like that. So flats for me. But great job! I love the bows on the back!

I am head over heels in love with these!!!!!!!! I'm not rockabilly or anything but I would totally wear these! Love the addition of the bow, great choice! OOHH I want some in every color! Smiley But the red is perfect!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
