I just love them, but I am not liking the price tag!

So I searched the thrift stores for a pair of shoes that I could transform.

I found this nice pair of Aerosoles for $4.00.

I taped off the upper part of the shoe, just leaving the sides of the sole exposed. I also taped off the bottom because I am obsessed that way!

I put on 3 coats of acrylic paint that I bought at Walmart for .97 cents.

After the third coat was dry, it looked too chalky for me so I applied a coat of water based glossy polyurethane since I had some in my paint supply cabinet.

I love how it sealed the craft paint and added a nice sheen.

I think these will look awesome with this outfit for fall.
