How hard can it be?

I’ve decided it’s foolish to PAY someone $160 to make paint splattered, deconstructed denim overalls for me.

I’m going to DIY it!

Here’s a pair of cheap overalls:

I imagine all I need to do is take some permanent fabric paint and splatter the surface of the overalls with the paint.

Maybe I can talk a friend into doing it with me so I have moral support.

Then we could have matchy-matchy outfits.

Two chicks in painted overalls!

The only downside to this is that by my calculations, the paint is $65 (15 colors @ 16 oz) and the overalls are $40, although I can probably find a cheaper pair.

So there’s not much wiggle room to save money.

Nevertheless, I am resilient and determined to make my paint splatter overalls happen.

And she was all YELLOW

Lately, I’ve been inspired by sunny yellow colors.

I saw this bikini online and now I dream of sashaying along a tropical beach in it.

But yellow is not a new color for me.

I’ve attended weddings in bright, happy yellow:

And I’ve been inspired by yellow in the photos I’ve taken:

I did happen to also get inspired by this outfit:

And it makes me want to get my own paint splatter overalls.

I have several friends who are artists who would laugh me out of the house if I told them I would pay money for a pair of paint-splatter, deconstructed overalls.

But it’s true.

Look at these ones online for $168.

Honestly, if I had more confidence in myself as an artist, I might attempt to design a pair myself but since I’m not a painter I might have to commission a pair.

Also, I could just get these for $42.25.

They’re pretty cute.
