    This recliner shows (almost) no sign of its once having been out cat’s favorite scratching destination. The products shipped the same day as I ordered them and arrived in record time! The repair products, techniques, and videos were top notch and the dye went on beautifully. I did not order a sample swatch but went with marine white based on description alone. It’s rather a cool white and in our very warm living room might not have been the best choice. As reasonably priced as these products are and as easy as they are to use, I’m going to order in the Ivory and possibly re—apply. I think I’ll be happier in the long run and this chair has a lot of life left.

    (I learned about Rub N Restore through Facebook Marketplace when I had the recliner listed for sale. It’s my husband's favorite chair but I thought it was beyond hope. This lovely woman who came across my listing introduced me to these products! Thanks to her and Rub N Restore, I deleted the listing and salvaged the chair!)

    I have an Italian leather chair that was a reddish brown but has faded. I just bought an expresso brown leather sofa and would like the chair darker. Does not need to be an exact March but at least close. What is your recommendation?

    Looks like our Mahogany will be the better match than our Espresso. Perhaps a mix of the two. The leather chair looks to be non-absorbent, and dog claws will scuff a new finish (just as they did the original). Please learn more about changing color here before proceeding.

    Looks like Rust or Cherrywood (or perhaps a mix of the two). See here about mixing / matching colors. We can also assist if you send a sample and pay a fee for matching. Either way, looks like the color should be diluted with a little Clear Prep+Finish™ (a glaze) to add luster and blend.

    The burgundy pair may need customization. They look like Red Chili or Wine darkened with a little Eggplant and a high shine clear finish. The other chairs look more brown like our Cherrywood or even Tobacco with little or no Clear Prep+Finish to achieve a satin luster.

    Looks like the head area is darker and oil stained and you're trying to mach the bottom cushion? Looks like a darker Rust, so maybe Rust mixed with Mahogany. Might need a Custom Color. Either way, play up differences in color and mimic the original variation by using a mottling technique.

    We don't have a corresponding formula for Ashley's "Burnished Brown" but looks like our Mahogany. If this is too dark, Cherrywood would lighten and redden. Walnut or Tobacco could also be used to lighten with a more neutral brown color that isn't so red.

    With a matching color you can just do the trouble spots and blend. Yours looks like a mix of Mahogany and Black with a satin glaze finish achieved by mixing 2 parts color mix and 1 part Clear Prep+Finish.

    Wine or Cherrywood are your best bet, but reds / burgundies often need customization. The cat scratches are widespread enough that filler might be the way to go, but check out this article about pet scratches first.

    If you're like me, champagne tastes, $.50 budget, I so desperately needed all new furniture (stuck in the oak is everything era)! I decided to refurbish my leather stuff on my own and OH SO QUICKLY fell head over heals for "MY Rub n Restore"! Picked glorious Mahagony to start on my leather pieces and talk about Beautiful & simple! No one could believe it wasn't brand new, Cost dye and clear coat. My Mahogany was such a hit I sanded down my 90's pine dining set, dyed it then clear coat sealed in the beauty. I love the juxtaposition of the dark Mahagony on my oak floors, cost dye and clear coat. I kept on refurbishing: old distressed bedside table, coffee table, sofa table and with some I added the taupe to lighten just a tad, cost... dye and clear rub sealant. My next Mahagony refurbish was an old 90s long 6 drawer dresser with detachable mirror...i went to town and within a couple hours finito and gorgeous. You know the cost! Next came my sun drenched, dried out, at one point was to die for bamboo patio set, my biggest refurbish yet! Mahogany to the rescue! Cost, of course you know by now! Then I fell hard for the Storm Blue! At this Point nothing was safe! I sanded and dyed all my kitchen cabinets that were, you guessed it, oak! Sanded those puppies down, added a little taupe with blue in some places, put hardware pulls on all cabinets and drawers, not a part of the 90's decor either, seriously clear coated a couple times, due to water damage, received our choice of wood or tile and sun drenched ceramic planks it was. Everything went with the railroad tile back splash and decorative (blue shades in checker pattern) strip that was already there! My Storm Blue kitchen is one in a million now...Costs, dye clear coat taupe period. My storm blue refurbish became my obsession: Front Door, kitchen stools just gathering dust in garage, the ladder that used to go with my sons bunk beds but now proudly displays some plaid blankets from the homeland, my son's pottery barn locker cabinet that began as bright red, my bedside table hot me a little adventurous and it that once was distressed pine now is a super combo of blue and taupe that I sponged on: Cost...sponge! There ate a few smaller pieces all in Vicki's Blue. Over the holidays I went crazy and refurbished just the top of my dining set. First on the list to go home to mahogany, table top! I have some pretty steep refurbishing goals coming up...with the Rub n Restore colors im going to create my own chartreuse (my fav color) and take care of the legs on the stools in our kitchenette, refurbish my living room end tables the same (small and sparse tables, OMG tackle Jack!s little boy stool the same and not sure where else the chartreuse wind blows me! BTW my chartreuse formula will be daffodil, turquoise and a like forest green with Marine White to adjust till just right! I myself rebuilt my patio fence that hold the opening gate portion...it WILL BE SAGE with a touch of pale blue Grey. My bathroom is finally getting a sliding barn door that I plan on making out of reclaimed wood that will only be the cost of the hardware! Im begging for the wood to get for free! (that wonderful invention is quite privy sooooo therein lies me begging batting eyelashes bringing lunch etc all for the refurbishing cost if $0 for some reclaimed wood) my hope is to refurbish master bath cabinets midnight blue with splashes of my white and of course pulls for drawers and cabinets. Guest bath going from oak to lighter pale grey and this might not be a bad time to mention...I love charity, both giving and receiving so my new refurbishing peeps I will take any and all hardware for cabinets. I will most definitely post whats not being used in and around mi casa. My garage I know will be someone's gold mine as it still is for me! In conclusion of my very long tale regaling my fabulous journey into the world of Rub n Restore CeCe and Lesandra, you ladies have changed my life for the better forever❤️ side bar...i did order a bottle of Cherrywood. Not only is it a wondrous color but im pretty sure it will be the "Bees?Knees on her sad leather assemble. Plus me, cant wait for the perfect piece for it! Money that no matter how much it kills us will be to buy large horizontal mirrors for both bathrooms. Thought about going the naked wood trim that you get special for the size of my existing mirrors and dying the wood a complimentary color but....excuse my French, SHIT THERE ARE THE COOLEST MIRRORS AVAILABLE NOW that its not the oak 90's anymore! Blessed love to all of you and your endeavors into Rub n Restore. It changed my life cause we live in CA & we po! ❌??❌??
