How to spray paint your rubber {Hunter} boots

A friend of mine was given a pair of old Hunter boots for her daughter.  They were worn and the pink color was very faded.  So much so that they were rather flesh colored.

I suggested she {ahem…I} paint them!

Gray was the chosen color.  So for the price of a can of spray paint, these cute boots were transformed!

First I covered up the Hunter label with painters tape.cover the label with painters tape at home in the northwest

Then start painting! I used a spray paint that specifically said it was good for plastic.  [Maybe all spray paints can be used on plastic?]

Can you believe it!?  So cute. So fun. And so easy!

I’ll be honest, the paint did run a bit.  But with the help of some fine sandpaper, I fixed the problem.  I’m sure the paint will rub off over time.  But I have a feeling it should hold up through this winter!

I love an easy [and cheap!] transformation!
