DIY: Suede Shoes into Smooth Leather

I know the title says how to turn suede into smooth leather, but that is technically impossible because the leathers are manufactured differently. Suede is smooth leather that is ruffed up to give it the nap. Where smooth leather is just left as is, but my tutorial will show how to take a pair of suede shoes and make them look like smooth leather.

I have considered dying them a...

Fixing our Headlights

This is a kinda of random post, but Grant and I needed to go to my parent’s property in Dime Box to water trees and fix the irrigation system. So since there is a driveway and a hose, I decided it was time for my car to get a wash.
