DIY Suede wrapped trim and red push button

Took only about 2 hours and 12 dollars. Not bad for a weekend project

Pretty simple, pulled the trim out wrapped it in suede from Joanne's fabrics, used 3m adhesive glue then cut out spots for the vents and ignition. Then just painted the ring around the ignition fire red. Very pleased with how it came out. I had the trim painted alpine white last week and hated it so I tried this

Honestly you can't mess it up, I re did one piece and it pulled right up after sitting for 2 days. If you got sick of the suede it would peel up and an adhesive remover would take the residue off
