TGIF! Today I wanted to share with you another small DIY project I recently completed. I purchased this J. Crew wool coat a while back for $49.99 because it was “damaged’. The only “damage” I could see what that it was missing a few buttons (i.e. see the lonely wool ones in the picture above).
Since there was now way I could wear this coat without being able to close it, I was on a mission to find some funky buttons replace the normal looking wool ones it came with. I stumbled across this Etsy shop called Add Vintage and ordered 12 fabulous gold buttons for only $4.00. Shipping was only $2.50 so I felt like I got quite a deal!
While watching TV, I completed my projected and I am very happy with the results. I feel like it is a brand new coat! Although the gold may not go with every outfit, it certainly makes a simple sweater dress much more sophisticated.
If lions are not your thing, there are a lot of other great buttons to try too! It is such an easy and cost effective way to switch up your entire look.
And if you need help sewing a button (hey we’ve all been there) this is a pretty good guide. Is there another online shop you love with fantastic buttons? Please share! Have a great weekend 🙂
