Fashionable Farmer/Runway Rancher Series, Episode 3: Muck Boot Makeover!

Here are my boots before.
Hello from my little "Patch-A-Heaven!" Hope you are all having a great summer. Things are pretty crazy around here! The garden is in full swing, I've gotten a few batches bottled (not as much as I should have though.) The kids have been riding horses and practicing with their show lambs (which means I have been barking out orders from the middle of the arena and hauling around in a flatbed Dodge pulling a horse trailer behind.) The County Fair is upon us. I pray my littlest girl can handle her lamb (he is a brute!) She has really toughened up a lot since we started (which was needed!) We have practiced and practiced, I just hope he cooperates. And I've been sewing and creating, you know...just doing my thing! So today I bring you the next look in my series "Fashionable Farmer/Runway Rancher." I have blogged about my green muck boots before, but I decided they needed a new look! So today I bring you "Muck Boot Makeover!" If you are new to this blog series, I try to bring farm/ranch looks up to date with the latest styles. I love being a cowgirl and have always been one, but I also love high fashion and runway looks and style. This is my way of joining both things I love. It's my kind of style. A hot trend this late Summer/Fall season is Metallics. (Gold, Silver, Copper, anything shiny!) So without further adieu...I introduce my old Muck Boots in their new hue!

Here's a peek at the after!


 I chose to spray paint these a gold color because the accessories I planned for the total outfit were gold. A real cowgirl, farmer, rancher needs a good pair of Muck Boots, they are a necessity, but who says she can't make a fashion statement with them?! I just used a gold spray paint I got at Walmart and went to town!! They turned out great. I think I may need to get the lambs and horses some shades because these babies are bright!!

                                              Stay tuned to see the entire ensemble!

                                          Have a fancy day from "Patch-A-Heaven!"
