DIY Glow in the Dark Shoes

red high heels before painting

It’s been years since we went out dancing. In college we would put on our dancing clothes and go out to the disco every Friday night after work. I always wore heels, and I don’t remember ever having sore feet.

My how things have changed! I have no idea where to go dancing, I never wear heels, and going out on Fridays just doesn’t happen any more.

Glow in the dark paint from Folk Art

I found these beautiful red pumps in my size at a thrift store last summer. I loved them immediately, and they actually fit really well.

I have put them on two or three times to wear to different events, somehow they never make it out the door, I feel conspicuous in them for some reason. So, I decided to paint them. I came across these great glow in the dark paints,from Folk Art. How fun! There might be a dance floor in my future after all.

Painting shoes in progress

I gave the shoes two coats of paint, letting them dry completely in between coats.

The paint has a matte finish so they aren’t quite as shines as they were before, but I can’t wait to wear them.

See you on the dance floor!
