Orange Shoes

My son is in love with the color orange and when his last pair of shoes were so worn that you could see the big toes I knew I need to find some replacements. His only request was that they be orange. I wanted something he could put on completely by himself. He has some velcro shoes but the tongues always seems to end up smooshed into the toes. I found these at Target and Ash immediately rejected them until I told him I would paint them orange.

I love how they came out. He was right they are way better in orange.

    1. I used a small brush to go around the edges but impressive part is the graphic which was a total cheat. It is a vinyl image on the canvas so I just painted over it and then wiped the paint off. I wasn't sure what it would do but it came out better than I anticipated.
