Every now and then my friends might send me some bizarre fashion items, as is the case with these chicken leg pumps, to challenge me to make some sense of it. I don’t think these shoes are that bad, so I created an outfit that goes with it.
Recently, a friend gave me a pair of pumps she no longer wanted. They fitted me perfectly, but the color was so boring and office-esque that I didn’t wear them until I realized they had potential. I decided to paint them gold, since it’s a neutral color that goes with pretty much anything.
Spray painting is a great technique for revamping old things, from shoes to pretty much anything. Just make sure you cover everything that you don’t want painted with tape and newspaper, and after you’re done, let the item sit for a while under the sun between coats of spray.
Once you’re done, wear your creation with pride!
