I painted my Birkenstocks sky blue for summer. 🙂 Why did I do this?
Because originally they were taupe nubuck which reminded me too much of human skin, and I didn’t really want to wear flesh on flesh. ((They didn’t look awful, but I just wasn’t having it.)) And being the savvy thrift shopper that I am, I literally found these shoes for $2 at a shop in Oregon (thank you Newberg Friends), so if something went wrong while painting them, I had nothing to lose (yet so much to gain!)
How to Make Your Shoes Pop! Tutorial:
All you need is these 3 essentials:
- 1 giant blob of happy colored paint
- 1 pair of boring old shoes (find them at a THRIFT store (Helloooo Salvation Army, Goodwill, or your local thrift)!
- 1 ordinary paint brush
Now sing along with me while I color my world with the chaos of trouble ♫♪
One, Two, Paint the shoe.
Three, Four, Paint some more.
Five, Six, Clean up shit.
Seven, Eight, They look great!
Now you’ve got fancy fresh feet to just in time for summer! Let me know how your own pair turned out in the comments below. 😉 You know you want to.
Some of you might be familiar with that whale watching video (found here) which went viral last week. It was filmed by the very same group that took me on my own spectacular whale watching adventure in Dana Point, Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari: DolphinSafari.com.
They took us on an exhilarating tour along Orange County’s coastline. First we followed a gray whale on its lonely migration north, then we found this pod of stampeding dolphins. It was too cool for words, so I made a short video instead. Can you spot the babies swimming with their mamas?
