This is the worst water damaged desktop I’ve ever been asked to attempt to make better. A chronically leaky roof has ruined the lacquer and caused severe “blushing,” that is, moisture trapped underneath the finish coat of lacquer causing a nasty, white haze. This is not unlike a wet white ring on a coffee table
This was kind of for fun. A customer came to me with a really old leather desk chair that he finds really comfortable – even after having been in a fire. The leather was burnt to a crisp on the arms but he didn’t want to replace it or have it reupholstered. With MANY reservations,
These three pictures show the different stages of repair from an overactive dog and his favorite chair leg.
A razor knife made a 3 inch cut straight through to the backing of this brand new leather chair.
