brogue transformation

kids are still gone, so i decided to finish a shoe DIY I stared long time ago.
these boots are from Urban Outfitters ($19.99). they are perforated leather, really soft and comfy. i thought i'd wear them this summer, but it is sooo hot in Tennessee this year. plus i've been wanting some cute brogues that looked feminine. so I cut the boots to shape them like brogues and painted them with bronze paint from JoAnn's. finished off with sanding them for a worn look. the boots came with leather laces but i love these over-sized bows on shoes they wear now. the ribbon for the bows is also from JoAnn's. i love my new shoes. what do you think?
