A second life for my old boots

I have those beautiful boots (well they were once)  but the heels are all scratched and I just can't get rid of them. So instead of throwing them away, I decided to repaint the heels.

I started by removing the old stuff with a simple fine sand paper and a blade.  This went like a breeze.

Next step, I put tape around the heel to prevent the paint from going on the leather (and ruin my favorite boots).

Turned out, the heel of the boots were made out of plastic-like Teflon so I went shopping for paint according to this new info.
This is what I found: Rust-oleum painters's touch, Ultra cover Gloss.

I really loved the Any-angle spray because it didn't leave streaks like a paintbrush would, so it was a bonus.  It really covered well and dried really quickly also.

The result is not bad and I can continue to wear them, YES! yes.
