See Goodwill Old Go To Sparkling Gold, Shoes That Is!

Go from old to gold! Shoes that is! Have an old pair of shoes you want to change the look of? Maybe an old pair of those ugly tinted shoes that you wore as a bridesmaid or even when you went to a formal dance? Or a pair you picked up at Goodwill just to try this DIY project out on? OK, here you go, a visual tutorial from Duitang.

This is a step by step photo tutorial from Duitang, an Asian site that has pictures that truly are worth a thousand words! Try it out, see what you think.  Hey, if it means you can recycle a pair of those old and uglies... even if they don't turn into Jimmy Choos, it sounds like a good deal to me!

Some craft paint, some glue and some glitter! Voila! Inexpensive and a fun way to switch out your shoe looks!

I laughed as I read a couple of the items listed as needed for the making these gold shoes.  Netflix? Adult Beverage? This write obviously had her day planned out!

So grab that glitter and Mod Podge and get No matter which tutorial you choose to use, the adult beverage listed as necessary in the second tutoial might make the project more fun! Invite your bridal party over and you can  all do your shoes at the same time! Have fun!

Best of all, using Mod Podge holds all your glitter in place so you will not be leaving a 'trail of gold' behind  you as you walk down the aisle!
