I saw this and had to share it, Lindsay of Lindsay and Andrew got this chair from the dump… I admit that makes me sorta jealous, and look how she revived it. Here is what she said:
Perhaps you remember this little guy, who we snagged from a lady as she was about to unload him into the landfill.
Well he was in perfect condition (yes objects in my life have genders.) but was very sun faded. And next to our other couch which wasn’t sun faded, our yellow table, and our funky rug it was just a little too much color for me.
Well we bought leather dye a long time ago, I just never got around to it.
Well I was in the middle of scrubbing baseboards, and about to scratch my eyeballs out I hated it so bad. I decided, no time like the present to dye our chair. And because, like my sister says, I have the attention span of a Yorkie puppy, I couldn’t be bothered with trying to find gloves. Big mistake… More on that later. So I applied the dye in fast circular motions and BAM it’s like a new chair!
I love it… I’m just sitting here admiring it in our living room!! It was too easy! But with every project comes a battle scar.
Just hope I can find a way to get it off before Wednesday for Drew’s sister’s wedding. Yikes.
Maybe I’ll just tell people it’s frostbite. Look at Drew’s toes, sneaking into my pictures!
