White shoes use side door

The post title is inspired from a lovely coffee house called appropriately Home Sweet Home . As well for the best coffee in Manchester, according to Chris, it has a decorative sign that says “Hippies – Use side door”, and of course there is a photo of it in the Qingdao Highlights . The first title idea was “Too fly for a white Firefly” and it came to me in a dream. My dream was not very accurate, as the brand of the shoe is Firetrap not Firefly. I need to improve brand recognition while dreaming.

These shoes were meant as a birthday gift for Chris. I love painting shoes. Chris already did it for our wedding and painted some gorgeous flats . I was very excited to return the favour.

Ingredients:

  • White Cloth Shoes
  • Brush(es)
  • Colors (we used acrylic)
  • Tape

Lessons Learned

Leave the colors to dry with the tape on for at least a day. This way there is no danger of smudging the shoe. Unless that is what you want.

Of course I couldn’t resist to play with a couple of the photos and edit them a bit further. Here is the result:
