Over time, our clothes have a natural tendency to discolor. Food, oil, or paint stains can make a garment look soiled and unkempt, especially if they are difficult to remove completely. Repeated laundering can also make a garment fade through misuse of bleach or simply the amount of washings, which results in a worn-out shade and white or yellow spotting.

Fortunately, there’s a way to salvage your discolored clothing (or clothes that you can’t bear to part with but have been dulled by overuse)—hand-paint them! Taking a paintbrush to your old pieces can give them an instant makeover as well as spare you the expense of replacing them with new purchases. Most importantly, however, hand-painting items you would otherwise throw out saves the environment from a truckload of trash, making you one eco-friendly fashionista.

Below are step-by-step instructions on how to hand-paint your crummy old clothes.
