DIY Shoe Up-Do

Spring is in the air and I was in the mood for a new pair of shoes. I stopped by my favorite vintage spot and found a great pair Land's End bucks. A total blank canvas.

They had a few spots and scuff marks here and there but that didn't bug me because I knew I'd be painting them. And for $15, it was a win win situation.

Luckily there's an art supply store a few doors down. I picked up two tubes of bright orange, and blue paint then ran home.

I taped them off using masking tape and got painting.

I'm in love with the final outcome, imperfect and painterly. Tonight I'll be taking them out on the town for a spin!

Ottoman Update

Today while running errands in the city I stumbled upon The City Quilter and decided to take a peek inside. That's when inspiration struck, the antique ottoman Abby and I have in our living room had seen better days and was in desperate need of an update.

I picked out a few fabric quarters cohesive to our color scheme and was on my way. After a little measuring, pattern planning and a couple hours our sad little ottoman started its new life.

I'm very pleased with the outcome, not too shabby for a last minute idea
