So You Scuffed Your Boots...

Friday, December 9, 2011

So I bought some boots... wore them twice....
and scuffed them up :(
The boots weren't returnable so I headed to Home Depot with my boot in hand. The employee at the paint counter was able to color match my boot and make me a sample size pot of matching brown paint.

Just to make sure the color would match, I added a bit of paint to a part of my boot that wouldn't show just in case it was the wrong color.
Once my test patch was dry, it totally matched so I added a little bit of paint to the scuff! I just dabbed it on and rubbed it around the edges with my finger to blend it in.
Obviously it doesn't look perfect up close but when the boots are on you can't tell that there was a scuff there at all!
So for about $2.50 and 5 minutes my boots were repaired!
