WAIT! DON’T YOU THROW THOSE BOOTS AWAY! I know it’s summertime, but you can wear boots
in the summer. And I’m going to show you how to make
freakin’ amazing ones. I’m Angelina and this is BlueprintDIY where I show you how to make your own designer
fashion. I’d love for you to SUBSCRIBE! We’re in the middle of an amazing Spring/Summer
fashion series that you don’t want to miss so let’s get started. For this project you’ll need an old pair
of leather boots, And some leather paint. I’m using the Angelus line of leather products. Check the description box for the full list
of everything I used. Ok, so first off I’m going to take a pair
of sharp scissors and cut my boots down to my desired height. This idea is inspired by the amazing KarenBritChick
here on YouTube. I absolutely love her style and her excitement
about fashion. It’s really catching, so I’d definitely
recommend checking her out. Ok, so as I’m cutting, I decided to keep that
stripe on the side a bit longer than the rest of the boot. Now this particular boot has a lining, so
I actually took it to my sewing machine and sewed the two layers together. But, if you’re using a cowboy boot or a boot
with stiffer leather, then you can just skip this step. Next, I’m going to pour a little leather deglazer
onto a cloth and wipe the boots down to clean them and
get off any previous finish layer. Quite honestly, this deglazer seemed like
nothing more than pure acetone to me so you might want to try that if you don’t
have this product. Once the boots are all wiped down, use a foam brush or paint brush to paint on the first layer of paint. This paint comes in an array of colors and
can be purchased online. So, this is what they looked like after the
first layer. I wanted my little stripes on the side to
be black so I left them till the end. You’ll want to let each layer dry completely before painting the next layer. Six hours later. Now we can paint the next layer. I tried different techniques with different
types of paint brushes because I was worried about leaving stroke marks. So, I would put the paint on with the regular brush and then pat it with the sponge brush. Although this might not have made a difference
expect to make this a really long process. Ok, it’s beginning to look better. Day two. Now it’s time for a third coat. And a fourth coat. One eternity later. No, it was actually the next day, but I’m finally satisfied with how it looks. So, if you want to add an accent color now you can add painter’s tape to protect
the part that you’ve already painted. I am using masking tape, but I would not recommend
it. You’ll see why in a minute. Now, I’ll paint my stripes black. And now that those are black the sole looks,
Bleh so I’ll paint that black too, cause hey why
not. Right? After the accent is painted, take the take
off immediately. Now you can see why I said not to use masking
tape, but since I did I’ll go ahead and touch that
up with the white paint right away. Now once again we wait. 2000 years later. Or until it’s completely dry, whichever comes first Finally we can add the acrylic finisher. You can apply this with a brush, which I would
definitely recommend because your white boots will need the protection. But, I applied mine with a cloth because I
thought it was looking too shiny but I really don’t think it would have dried
as shiny as it was looking. The No. 600 finisher is not supposed to be
shiny, but if you want shiny they have other finishes. Finally, once that’s dry you are ready to
wear your awesome summer boots that I’ve been seeing everywhere right now. Except no one else will have the exact ones
as you. And you’re welcome! I hope you all enjoyed this video. Let me know in the comments if this is something
