Got my chanel lambskin bag repainted by lovinmybags!

  1. About 2 months ago I mentioned that I was going to either clean or dye my Chanel bag as the beige parts were getting a bit discoloured. (See my old thread here: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel/dyeing-your-bag-have-you-done-it-opinions-51620.html

    After great hesitation I sent my bag to lovinmybags.com and the results were fantastic. :nuts: I'm really quite happy and can't be more pleased with my new bag. Barbara only repainted just the straps as I requested. I must say there is ONLY A VERY SLIGHT perceptible difference in the texture/feel/look of the straps compared to the body of the bag - and I am a very, very finnicky person (my mom and sis both say it's unnoticeable) . The straps are still soft and lovely. Overall the bag looks and feels both new and nicer. I was afraid I would end up regretting this, but I don't. I love the bag more now! Anyway, just thought I'd post some pictures.

  2. wow, great job, looks great.
     
  3. I also bought a really old and mistreated Chanel cambon wallet on eBay for a bargain and had it refurbished by lovinmybags at the same time as my Chanel bag. (Two before and two after pics below)

  8. Thanks everyone for your comments! :heart:

    mello_yello_jen: Because I'd heard horror stories and personally know people who'd sent their bags to Chanel and were disappointed with the results... Apparently the leather felt very different/worse? Every one of them regretted dyeing it in the first place... I initially just wanted to clean up the straps, but I was pretty impressed by the photos on lovinmybags site so thought I'd give repainting a try. :smile:
