Painting Leather Shoes

Next I decided to dabble in painting shoes.

This is a well loved, well worn asymetrical leather wedge that can be dressy or casual. 
Seriously I have taken just these shoes on various trips.

Anyways, I have worn the shoes so often they were on the edge of being boring. I had loved them plain so I decided to see if my love would be reignited with a change of appearance ( that happens with lots of old people things ).
My first thought was to go wild and try an animal motif but, then I remembered how much I liked these shoes and how good the chance was that the animal look would not turn out well so...

I finally went for a conservative stripe that I knew would work out.
 Maybe when I have shoes I don't like as much I'll try the animal thing.

Now I love my shoes again and the best part is I don't think anyone will suspect that I painted them. 
The best compliment for a DIY project is NO ONE asking if you did it :)
