If you go shoe shopping right now, you will see boots.
I mean lots of BOOTS.
Mom’s are buying boots for the kids, Grandma’s are buying boots for the kids, Grandma is buying boots for Grandma…
boots are amazing.
They are comfortable, warm, look fantastic, and if you go in clearance any time of the year it seems,
there are plenty to find at an affordable price.
I’m not into the $179 boots.
I like the $20…or $40 ones.
I was in Marshall’s last year, and I came across these cool boots on the clearance rack.
I loved the style.
I pictured myself walking down 5th Ave. like Jennifer Anniston does with her coffee in hand.
I would look COOL in these boots, man!
The color was really weird.
Somehow, I looked passed the shiny green, brown, grey color and got them.
They were only $20 and very cozy and comfortable.
So, they sat in my closet and I never wore them.
Every time I tried them on they never looked quite right.
Almost like plastic boots!
They needed something…
I took them down in my basement, and sanded the booty off of them.
I mean I really sanded them good.
They were already looking better, but I decided to take it a step further.
I removed the laces and spray painted the entire boot with black spray paint.
All I had to do was tape off the top so it didn’t get in the shoe.
I only did one coat.
After they dried, I sanded them again, but not as much.
(any grit sandpaper will due)
They turned out fabulous.
My only problem, is that my youngest daughter wants them.
How could I resist.
They are all yours, Val!
