Hello AT,

I salvaged this chair that was headed to a lindfill.

It was made by Contempo Desings in Brooklyn without having a date attached.

It looks like this was mainly used outdoors from the dirt that I had to scrub off of it and I was able to bring it back to life using some leather/vinyl cleaner.

However, the arms look to have been sunbleached and I wanted to restore it to new condition.

I was wondering whether anyone out there has had any experience with painting techniques for vinyl.

I have done research online and the method I am leaning towards is using a paint gun to apply something called Verikote vinyl dye from Parasol Inc...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Would you recommend this technique or product? Has anyone attempted a project such as this one?

Also, what could I use to fill the tiny hole in the armrest?

Thanks! Frank
