Detail Shot Saturday: Slime Green + Leather

Espadrilles: Goodwill Outlet/ DIY
I have been obsessed with bright colors lately! They seem to be everywhere for spring/summer.  (And by 'everywhere' I mean Target. :))

Something about bright colors mixed with leather scream summertime to me, and with these 80-something days we've had in Richmond, it seems to be nearly here!

If you're looking for a super-easy and cheap way to brighten your thrifted shoes, neonize-ing them is the way to go. We're talking three coats of bright acrylic paint, a sponge brush, and a steady painting arm, and you've got a brand-new look!

Always,
Amanda

    Cool idea to add some color to some old shoes. Great Tips! I will never look at my old shoes the same way again. :o)
