I found a pair of boots whilst having a clear out the other day. Leather Dr Martens which are pretty battered and warn from my college days - didn't have the heart to throw them out.
So I decided seeing as I have been learning to paint, I'd give it a go customising my boots!
I had a practise first on a little pair of kids boots I bought from Trago Mills for £3, which turned out pretty well. I purchased various leather paints and treatments and set to work. Fairly pleased with them! (See below).
I have since had enquiries from people wishing for me to 'Upstyle' shoes and boots belonging to them, which they love dearly but do not have the heart to throw away. Why buy a new pair of boots, when you can inject some life in to your old ones as well as save some money at the same time!
If you have a much loved pair of shoes you would like me to Upstyle - get in touch for a quote!
