So I bought these platform woven wedges last year on Santee Alley in DTLA for $25. They're featured in one of my older posts. I love the look of length they gave my legs and anything over 5inches is okay in my book as far as shoes go!
Needless to say however, I got tired of the 70s-inspired woven pattern on the sole quickly. I needed to do something to protect my investment. So DIY to the rescue!
Here's what you need:
Black Acylic Paint, Thumb tacks 900-1000 (Try Staples or Walmart or the Dollar Store) and Matte Black Spray Paint
- Paint over the woven sole with black acrylic paint (It looked super nice and I wore it just like this for a while.) It takes a couple of hours to dry so I'd recommend painting at night and continuing in the morning.
- Stud the woven sole with the silver thumbtacks. (This can take you a few hours if you don't have cable. It could be weeks if you do!
- Spray paint the gold metal buckles with matte spray paint to match the rest of the shoe. A couple of coats is best to prevent crackling paint.
VOILA! Enjoy your new Jeffrey Campbell- tick wedges for a fraction of the cost!
