For my first Project ReStyle project I restyled a much loved pair of vintage leather heels. I've had these heels for about a year, but they had gotten too ragged (see the back of the shoe... they were getting to the point of 'unwearable') and I wanted to try to give them a fresh life! I loved the shape of this pair of heels, but the condition of the leather was really poor. I painted them with two coats of indoor/outdoor gold paint and then 3+ coats of glitter paint. Ta-Da! The damages are concealed and they look cuter than ever.♥ It was a fun experiment and I want to make more sparkly shoes for my shop soon!
Happy First week of 2011! If you still want to join Project ReStyle, find details here.
Here are my favorite projects by Project ReStyle participants via our flickr group this week....

I'm so excited about this project. I'll be blogging about ReStyled clothing and decor every Wednesday this year. Thanks for reading.... elsie
