    NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project.

    What you’ll need:
    A pair of shorts
    Washing machine

    Step 1: Pour 1 part bleach and 1 part water into a bucket.

    Step 2: Spread newspaper under your shorts, on a flat surface.

    Step 3: Use an old paintbrush to paint onto your shorts. You may need to go over your marks multiple times, until you achieve the desired lightness.

    Step 4: Wash, dry, and you're done!
