Project Restyle: Keds

It's time for another Project Restyle! Click to see my previous projects.
I picked up these vintage white keds from the thrift store a while back for $2.
The only problem was they were yellowed. But then I found another pair of white keds that were in much better condition, so I snapped those up and threw this pair into the restyle pile.

Then I was inspired by twig+bone, who was inspired by bleubirdvintage, to paint my shoes. So I got some pink paint, and ta-da! New shoes. Can't wait to wear them tomorrow!

I was thinking that I'd really like to add some velvet laces... I just can't decide if should get pink or white. Or both.

Over all, I love how they turned out, and I will be on the lookout for more shoes to paint. :)
I just wish there was some way to get rid of the remaining yellowness. Maybe I'll paint that area white...


  1. Awesome Love the pink, Yes a nice coat of white fabric paint and the would look like brand new shoes. oo and fun laces too I can't wait to see what you pick!

  2. too cute! i looove the pink and thank you so much for the shout out ;)

  3. what a great idea! I think the pink laces would look adorable :)

  4. too late for this pair, but maybe in the future: machine wash hot with bleach. Will get rid of the slightly yellow and lighten up the rest. Then paint.


I'd love to hear what you think. :)
