Today I had contractors round to sort out our electrics - replace fuse box, replace some sockets, test everything etc. I needed a project so I was there for questions, but out of the way. A while ago I did a shoe review and concluded that while I liked these boots, they were just so... tan.
Megan Mae, always full of good ideas suggested I try dyeing them. And so I did.
Firstly, I cleaned & rubbed them down with white spirit (my shoe repair chap gave me *very* detailed instructions) -

brush at the front. Will not be saving that for eyeshadow application...
And... Tah dah!

(slightly naughty to put them on kitchen worktop...)
I've had them for years and it was only the colour that bugged me, so am very happy with the new colour. It took about 2 hours and cost about £12 (18$ ish). Will wear them soon & post a picture (today, after shoe dyeing & gardening I got my harems straight on so there was no getting-dressed again).
And it's Friday! Tomorrow the lovely DMC is taking me out on a mystery birthday jaunt - I need a dark outfit (crafting appropriate) and another, posher one for later. Exciting, I love surprises :-)
What are your weekend plans?
