My DIY shoes

Ne volim bele cipele na štiklu. Naročito na venčanju kada je mlada sva u belom, pa još i u belim cipelama. Volim kada su joj cipele u nekoj boji, pa razbiju svu tu belinu.

Sa tom idejom sam lutala po Novom Sadu tražeći prave cipele za mene, pa sam se kasno setila nečega što sam odavno zaključila - da je Novi Sad grad sa veoma lošim izborom obuće. Onda sam slučajno prolazila pored jedne jeftine prodavnice obuće, znate one sa polukineskom robom kojih sad ima na svakom koraku. I videla sam ove cipele, za veoma malo para (oko 2500 dinara). Bele su, ali mi se oblik jako dopao...

I don`t like white high heels. Especially at weddings when the bride is all in white, and in white shoes too. I like them to be in some vibrant colour, so that they break all that whiteness.

With that idea in my mind I was wondering through Novi Sad, looking for right shoes for me. And then i remembered something - that shoes offering in my town has always been lame. And then suddenly I passed by one of those cheap shoes stores, and saw these shoes, for very little money (20e). They`re white, but I liked the shape...



Već sam kod Iv i Maje zmaje čula za ideju da obuću prefarbaš akrilnim bojama. Palo mi je na pamet da probam to o sa mojim cipelama. Pa ako mi ne uspe, nema veze. Neće mi biti žao para. Tako je krenuo moj DIY poduhvat...

Already I have heard about the idea to colour your shoes at Iv and Maye Zmaye blog. It came to my mind to try that on my shoes. And if it doesn`t turn right, I wouldn`t be sorry for the money. That`s how my DIY endeavour began...


Obojila sam ih u dva sloja zelene boje. Ideja mi je bila da ih posle cele istačkam u crne tufne, ali sam usput shvatila da je to previše, pa sam štapićem za uši istačkala samo jedan prednji deo, i deo pozadi. Na kraju sam ih za svaki slučaj prefarbala jednim slojem zaštitnog laka, mada nije bilo potrebno, obzirom da je akrilna boja vodootporna.

I coloured them in two layers of green. The idea was to put little black dots all over them, but then I realised that it was better to do that only on one part in front, and at back. At the end I covered them with protection colour, but it wasn't necessary because the acrylic colour is already waterproof.
