I hope you are having a lovely start to your first October weekend 🙂
Again, for the second week in a row, Nashville is killing it with the weather….AH. I couldn’t be happier.
Speaking of the perfect weather, because it’s been so fallish, I finally have the chance to break out these bad boys this weekend…these bad boys being my new pair of at-home distressed jeans!
As y’all probably know, distressed jeans are much more expensive to buy in the store than just a normal pair of jeans….which is silly to me because 1. you’re paying for less jean and 2. distressing them yourself, although time consuming, is way easier than I think people realize.
With that, I thought it might be fun to show you what I use to distress my jeans & how you can, too….and then also what the final product looks like, if you decide to do it!
So first off, this is the Pinterest guide that I used to attempt this project, it literally walks you through every step of the process, with only the 2 tools needed to make it happen:
Now it’s my turn!
Here are a few snapshots throughout the distressing process:
I have to tell y’all, I was a little unsure how this project would turn out, but I actually LOVE the final product.
And now, these are what the jeans look like on! The lighting was really funky this day….so I apologize for that, but I assure you, they are the same jean!
I am going to make a vow to you all starting right now, to never buy another pair of already distressed jeans again (feel free to hold me accountable for this statement) because I now know I have the capability to do it myself…all you really need is some time and some patience. Plus, I’m the kinda gal that if I can DIY anything, I am going to do it haha. So this is the perfect place to save a little money and get to be a little creative every now and then, when I am wanting to upcycle an old pair of jeans!
Would any of you be willing to distress your own jeans?!
