Shoes don't just have to be shoes. Make a bold statement by spray painting them in a fun color for special occasions! Perfect for a wedding, prom or even Halloween!

  1. First, always work in a well-ventilated area. Cover the floor with a drop cloth and apply painter's tape to areas you don't want to paint. 
  2. Next, shake the spray paint for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle.
  3. Then, hold the can about 8-12” away from the item you want to paint and spray it in a steady back-and-forth motion. You'll want to add 2-3 light coats to the entire project a few minutes apart. This will ensure a more even finish. 
  4. Last, remove painter's tape after 20 minutes and let everything dry completely for about an hour. 
  5. Dance the night away!
