Coach bag after dying, now a gorgeous distressed leather. Left the patent handle as is because it was in great shape and matches the front logo.

Got this Coach for $10 from a thrift store. Off white, worn edges, leather a bit dingy, couple of ink stains. excellent condition inside. Patent handle in perfect condition. Time to break out the leather dye again!

Bought this vintage Michael Kors handbag for $10.49 (30% off day). Not fond of the colour, so I conditioned the leather with acetone, dyed it three times with brown Fiebings leather dye, conditioned it with acrylic leather conditioner.... and voila! A more modern looking rich, chocolate brown.

This Coach clutch had been stored with another multi coloured handbag and the colours bled into the white patent leather.. It was in mint, never-used condition inside. I stripped the stained areas with acetone, touched those areas up with white leather paint, conditioned the leather, and finished it off with a clear high gloss patent leather acrylic coating. Took about 45 minutes altogether.
