  1. I recently changed the look of my very tired and stained (vachetta trimmings) Delightful MM. I also had been using my LV shoulder strap to death. Both had seen their best days.

    I then went into full recovery mode and have spent hours carefully cleaning, dying and coating the leather parts. I also hand painted the mexican skull on the front.

    My delightful has gone through a full facelift. Not only have I brought her back to life, I have a very unique Delightful on my shoulder now.

  2. I like it
     
  3. Wow, I really like the skull! Well done, congrats!
     
  4. I love the new look! My OM Delightful's vachetta is still a light honey colour but this is definitely something to consider many years down the road when the leather has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. I have to ask though, do you find that the black dye stains your clothes and/or skin easily?
