Handpainted Tetris Shoes

Sometimes I have the Tetris theme stuck in my head, and not just when I'm organizing things. Tetris is probably the ultimate boredom game. I used to play it on my graphic calculator on my way to school when I was in high school, that's the only game I ever put on there, my class mates had all kinds of games installed, but I was just fine with the good old Tetris.
Tetris shapes are also a great design for shoes I thought and got to work with a pair of slip ons that I thrifted a while back.

At first I tried to bleach them to get a white canvas to paint on, but the paint proved to be more powerful than the bleach.

So I just painted them black, it's too bad you can see the "hashtags" through the black paint, but oh well. To know where and how to paint the different Tetris shapes I used a ruler to sketch some graph lines directly on the shoes. And then I painted:

I think they turned out mighty fine!
And if I get bored on the way to work my shoes remind me of the good old pastime Tetris.

This post will be part of Nina's Upcycling Tuesday and the Creadienstag.

  1. I love the fact that you took an older pair of shoes and made them new again! These are great. Thanks for linking this post to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party! See you next week.


It seems like I'm doing all the talking here ;) What your opinion?
