Anyone else like to rock rain boots on a nice sunny day? Me and my little gal sure do. I'm thinkin she picked it up from me ;) . We love to plop on our wellies (or goat ropers, as my husband calls them) to do a little gardening or what knot, regardless if there are puddles to stomp through or not. I have a festive pink and white polka dot pair, but poor Lou only has a plainie janie black rubber pair. Perfectly functional and acceptable but not nearly fashionable enough for a gal with this much spunk. So, what to do, what to do? Say it with me... 'ReFASHion!!!!'
Recently I was introduced to an awesome product called Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint. I created a DIY Glitter Lamp and shade with it and fell in love... hard. This product claims to cover any material (with in reason) with a fabulous coat of glitter and stay put. Things have been 'so far so good' with my lamp so I decided to give it another go. Here is what I did with Lou's $9.00 basic Walmart rubber boots, tips and tricks to follow.
Holy guacamole of cuteness right? She is a full blown fashionista with these beauts. I wanna pair! I DO recommend giving the boots a healthy coat of clear enamel spray paint after the glitter has dried. This will help to prevent peeling, rub off and cracking. I did a nice heavy coat of the clear and the boots have held up through a couple of wears now. And let me tell you, Lou is not exactly a 'dainty' princess. She is a snail stomping, mud puddle splashing, doggie chasing hooligan. In other words, this shiznit is tough!
Jump for joy if you love glitter!
Thanks for stopping by! So many fun diys coming up I just don't know where to start! I also have some pretty incredible family fun pics. Even if you don't like the family updates, you will appreciate the sheer awesomeness of these moments in time that we were able to (luckily) capture.
