These boots are made for walkin....{Garden boots}

Decorating with garden boots adds just a touch of whimsy to the garden!
Last Summer, I did a pallet project, and I added some Garden/ Rain rubber boots to the top.  They were actually given to me by a friend long ago. She thought Jack could use them.
Sorry, Jack, Mom could use them instead.
upcycle wood pallet for the garden mediterranean

The other day I got to thinking about some cute Garden boots

                                          All the colorful, cute styles they have out now.

And it pretty much was at that moment that it hit me! SPRAY paint and a stencil!

{color is Krylon Jade}
These boots were made for walkin...and that's just what they'll do...



I have a feeling these boots will be walking all over the place around here this summer!
YES, these are the same boots...spray painted and stenciled.
Aren't they just the cutest?
Note, ivy is outside now!

Those are the same boot???? I thought maybe you bought a pair of blue and stenciled ON, didn't realize you painted the whole pair. One of my sons left some waders in the garage, I could cut those off.

Oh my gosh.. who would have thought. That so cute. I painted black shoes purple once for my witch costume at Halloween - I actually couldn't believe how well they truned out. Maybe I'll spray my black boots pink for spring since I can't have yours!
You are so creative Debbiedoo. =)

Seriously, I want them all. I'm going to be interested to see if that paint peels. Oooops, didn't mean to be a bummer....

I don't think they will peel, however, I do plan on moving them into the mud room..just in case.

Yep, they are just the cutest! I have thought about using decorative boots outside for flowers, but here is my crazy (Are you surprised) fear....A snake will crawl in...Crazy I know! I am all ready for the voyeurs to arrive tomorrow LOL! I don't get up until the crack of 10 so I hope they don't make to much noise!

Hi Debbie, I am a follower of Carol and it was fun to see her home. It truly is a charmer! Love your boots! I have a pink polka dot pair that I have had out on my porch for a while. I noticed that they had sun faded and it made me a bit sad. Now I know a fantastic way to remedy that! Thanks for sharing! I love the color and the stencil.
Hugs,
