This week I was in crafting mood. After I specialised the giveaway bag (you can still enter the giveaway - and you definitely should - the satchel is gorgeous, I feel like not showcasing it good enough for you) I thought about a DIY project. Browsing on Mango's online shop I found those brogues and the idea just popped into my mind.
These winter days you can find a lot of summer shoes on sale in the backmost corners of shoe shops. I for example found those flowery ones for 4.95€. With a few utensils, hand grips and patience I recreated Mango's broques into similiar non-broques.
Step 1: Find a pair of shoes no matter how unattractive the pattern might be
Step 2: Use silver acrylic lacquer (can be found in any art supplies shop) for an all over undercoat
Step 3: After the silver dried you can add the pattern with the help of black acrylic lacquer (apply the silver dots after the black dried)
Step 4: After letting everything dry again, apply gloss varnish regularly all over the shoes
Step 5: Most important (or the colour won't uphold so long) spray a moisture blocker (can be found in most regular shoe shops)
Don't hesitate and ask me if you have questions about this DIY in the comment spot.
Try it out yourself and have fun!:)
