    I've thought about this also....wondering if a spray paint out there could liven it up....I would ask Ace or another paint company if it can be done.....or google painting leather.

    I once tried one of those leather "repair" kits where you mix up the powder and "iron" on with an included square of "embossed" fabric to mimic the grain of leather. I didn't have much luck with getting the color right, and it looked like a "patch" so I sent the chair to Goodwill.

    Thanks Bobbie, After figuring out that my chairs are not leather but vynil, did no want to put a lot
    of cash on them....Finally, I found at JoAnns a bottle of black fabric paint that did the work pretty good...glad that my chairs are just black, probably would not had worked out trying to match colors...Done and
