Part of camp experience included a trip to the pond searching for pond life meaning they needed a pair of rubber boots to enable them to get up close and personal.
At the beginning of summer both kids outgrew their rubber boots which lead to a rubber boot scavenger hunt.
Thankfully I found a pair for both of them but trying to find a girlie pair for giggles was impossible this time of year.
We made due with the ugly black ones but I didn’t want to leave them that way.
A Pinterest pinned posted a great DIY rubber boot fix so I thought I would give it a whirl.
I scrubbed the rubber boots to get all the pond guck off.
I purchased Coordinating purple ribbon to adorn the back of the boots.
Today is Monday and the boots are still tacky to the touch.
They have weird water like marks and the paint is streaked and runny.
Not only am I confused as to what my next step is but, I don’t know if these boots are ever going to dry.
What am I going to do with them if they don’t?
I put them out on the front step yesterday hoping the summer sun should cure the paint.
Now it’s rainy and overcast so the boots are sitting on top of the eating bar.
Will the paint dry?
Will this blunder right itself?
I’m not sure…
Stupid Pinterest and all their wonderful DIY projects!!
Maybe I should just stick to pinning recipes and shellac nails.
At least that turns out!
Have you tried a pin that didn’t work out?
Would you ever try another one?
