Yes, you really can use my Blake & Taylor Chalk Furniture Paint on leather shoes!  Here is a pair of great wedges that I needed to go with a specific outfit but I didn’t want to go out and purchase a new pair.  I had a bit of ‘Hampton’ colour left over from some other projects, so I thought I would give them a little makeover and create a new look.

Here’s how I did it.

Firstly I gave them a good clean with a damp cloth to remove any dirt.  I then left them to dry fully.

I then applied two thin coats of Blake & Taylor Chalk Furniture Paint in ‘Hampton’.  The first coat was dry within 20 minutes and ready for the second application.  Two coats were enough to cover the original dark navy colour of the leather.

Shoe Makeover Using Blake & Taylor Chalk Furniture Paint

Allow the paint to dry fully before applying a touch of Blake & Taylor Natural Wax.  This helps to soften the leather and add protection.  This process is just like adding shoe polish.  Add the wax with a dry lint-free cloth.  Rub it into the surface and then wipe away the excess.  No cracking or stiffness just lovely
soft blush pink leather.  There you have it, a great new pair of fabulous shoes!
