What to do with old, faded Toms shoes

First of all, if they smell bad and have too many holes, throw them out and go shopping for a new pair! 🙂 Now, if they’re just a bit old and faded, you can revive them with a little paint. ~Nicci

1. Clean them with a damp cloth to get the dust off so the paint will stick.

2. Figure out what you want to paint on them… I think I’ll go with The Nightmare Before Christmas so I can wear them to Disneyland.

3. Start painting.

4. Finish them with a light coat of Clear Acrylic to protect the artwork from rain or dirt.

5. Show them off.

    I love the idea of repurposing and rejuvenating items so that they don’t end up in landfill. Envious that you are going to Disneyland. Have you ever thought of creating crafts for sale on http://www.etsy.com?
