Time to Renew // An Instagram DIY
Flipping through my Instagram feed a few weeks ago I found the perfect motivation to fix and make pretty again one of my favorite bags, my beloved Balenciaga.
She is beat up, worn out and has been through many of life's events with me.. but I will not part and I know I surely cannot replace at this point so happily I found the perfect answer, to dye it new again thanks to Liz Vranesh.
Here is what she did with her vintage Chloe, love!
1. Old third hand Chloe bag
2. Remove extra pieces and unhinge/unzip everything else
3. Use a cleaning brush and laundry detergent under the sink to scrub leather (especially waterproofed) under water, rinse
4.Soak leather in due bath, turn every few minutes for even color
5. Rinse well and air dry, ta-da!!
*Thank you Liz!
Now to decide what color for my bag??
