I wanted to update these shoes that were collecting dust in the back of my closet so I painted the wooden heel and rim of the sole. I love the color blocking trend that's so big right now and this didn't cost me a dime!

    I actually used acrylic and a couple coats of it! I know it's water based but I won't be getting these wet. Honestly, if I even wear them once it will be worth it!

  23. I've used nail polish to fix up a pair of shoes whose color I wasn't quite happy with before, and it's held up very nicely. Plus, super fast & easy to re-apply if necessary!
