Last spring, we did a faux finishing job for a very generous client. I loved this chair that they were selling and her and her husband GAVE IT TO ME. Yes….gave it to me….
It is one of the prettiest things in my home.
Unfortunately…..one of the my budding artist children was using a permanent marker to draw me a picture. They didn’t realize permanent black marker can bleed thru paper and ruin crushed velvet. UGH!
I was sick to my stomach.
After posting my problem on my Magic Brush Facebook page (yes…you can find me on Facebook!)….I decided to try a Magic Eraser to get the stain out.
Then I noticed…..the guy on the Magic Eraser box looks an awful lot like the guy I go to bed with every night. Hmmmmm……
So I went to work. Fingers crossed. Silently praying.
And the marker definitely got lighter. But left this nasty ring around the spot I cleaned….
And voila! It really IS magic…..I can’t even see the spot anymore!!!!!
Thank you for all of your Facebook suggestions. Thank you dear clients again for the chair. And thank you to my man….who is way cuter than Mr. Clean for posing for this post.
