Kathy got this leather-top table for free from her employer and we can see why! The leather top was stained and discolored like crazy. Kathy almost didn’t take it home, then she thought of one last-ditch DIY thing to try and that made all the difference.

Turns out, it was the brilliant magic of leather dye that helped this table look so good. Great save!

From Kathy:

Thanks to the internet I learned that you can re-dye leather. It went really well! Now it’s hard to remember how bad the leather looked at first – it is such an improvement. I also painted the wood, stained the inside of the drawer, and added some hardware.
