can I, and do I want to, recolor leather furniture?
Just asking. I think I already know the answer. But I thought I'd check.
A friend is selling an old ('70s? early '80s?) Ethan Allen club chair. Some overly poofy pillow-type things on the back but those are easily replaced. What I'm worried about is the leather itself, which EA called "cordovan," but which I'd describe as a rusty orange. If the chair were khaki or espresso, we'd consider it. It's in good shape. But orange?
So am I kidding myself here in wondering whether I could do something to this myself? or would you advise either reupholstering it or not buying it?
