I had hoped someone would answer your question. I think the reason this looks "dull" to you is because it has a satin finish. I don't know if it would be worth taking a chance to strip and redye.

What color did you want it to be?
A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

Hi Chuck, roo4u is right- this might be the wrong section...


perhaps you should give "ray holes saddle butter" a chance-

its the best for nearly everything!!!
