Question:

Is it permitted to repaint a wooden and leather chair during the 3 weeks and 9 day? What about drawing and painting for recreation (on paper or canvas)?

Thanks

Answer:

On is permitted to repair broken items even in the 9 days. If the chair is unusable without being painted it can be repainted.But if the paint is only for aesthetic purposes it should be postponed until after Tisha Beav. One can draw for recreation.
