Change the Buttons!

I wasn't sure if  I should even share this tiny little project.. But maybe one of you can use this for inspiration, so here it goes. 

I bought this wool blend coat at the BP department at Nordstrom a few years back. Then a button fell off and I stopped wearing it. (plus I didn't really like the big plastic buttons) 

I finally got around to going to Joann's and picking up a few buttons. 

Ta Da!

Looks like a new coat!

Thanks so much for visiting.


  1. I have this exact same coat except in gray! One of my buttons broke in half when closing the car door and I still haven't fixed it. I love the idea of adding some classy new buttons.

    1. Yes! Changing the buttons gives it a whole new look. Plus it is so easy, anyone can do it.

  2. I would never have thought of doing something like this. DIY is not in my blood.
    Love the new version.

  3. I did something similar for a coat I bought my daughter at a yard sale last summer. The coat was red with red buttons. It definitely belonged to a little boy in its previous life so I wanted to "girl it up" a little bit. I REALLY wanted ladybug buttons but couldn't find the right size so I ended up with some little flower buttons. Cuted it right up! :-)
