Have you ever seen the blog Mr. Goodwill Hunting? Well it is written by Rashon Carraway who is a contributor on The Nate Berkus show. He does amazing things with Goodwill finds. Like this Baker cabinet he found for $75, which originally retailed for $17,370. Wow. Then he painted it gray and it looks amazing.
So, inspired by his blog, I dropped by the local thrift store, and I found a cute little gray leather chair. I looked at the bottom and it said Crate & Barrel. Googled Crate & Barrel leather chair and it appears they are selling chairs similar to this one for about $2,000. I'll take it. $20 is what I paid.
It actually looks better than the picture shows. There are no cracks in it, just some scrapes that I think will go away with some conditioner or gray polish. The only thing wrong with it is a small spot with packing tape sticky. I'm not sure how to get it off, and I don't want to try things and mess up the chair. Does anyone know the best way to recondition leather furniture?
