Everyone has that pair of shoes that’s a little too old, kind of boring, or just plain out of style, and you probably don’t get much use out of them because of it. For me, it’s a pair of Steve Madden brown suede pointed pumps from six years ago - they’re cute, but they’re just not me, and I’ve probably worn them twice. So what do I do with them?
We say, there’s a DIY remedy for everything! Our friends at ShoeSnap have a great Pinterest board dedicated to DIY projects for shoes, which is what inspired us to search for a few of our favorites. (Here’s what I’ll be doing to those suede pumps.) Check out some fun DIY fixes for those shoes you want to spice up - or just go buy a brand new pair to decorate at home. We won’t tell.
