HOUSTON (KTRK) --Get ready to rodeo! Cowboy boots may be on your list of things to buy for the big show, but you don't have to buy brand new.
Dig through your closet, hit the garage sale or thrift shop and pick up a pair of used boots because the trend now is painting your boots.
For the price of paint, you can get a new pair says Pippa Williams with TooCheapBlondes.com. Williams says acrylic paint sold at the craft store for $2 to $5 can really transform the dull and old to interesting and custom.
Online we found several pairs of custom-painted boots for close to $500. Williams painted two pairs for less than $10. She says she is not an artist, but followed online tutorials to get the job done. Williams says paint is a perfect way to hide all those imperfections like stains and scuffs.
Williams says one of the best places to find boots is the Family Thrift Shop on Bellaire Boulevard.
