Peppercorn Vinyl & Leather Finish

(36 customer reviews & photos)

$16.00$70.00

Peppercorn is a dark grey color that is still several shades up from black. Some customers remark that it’s a cooler (more blue) tone.

Clear

Use it like a dye on aniline, full-grain leather and vinyl upholstery to:

  • conceal stains and fading;
  • condition and protect.

It applies easily with a sponge and will not alter the feel. It won’t peel or rub off onto clothing.

Each bottle comes with gloves and stir stick.

    These are before and after photos of a faux leather couch that wore on only my husband's side, although we pretty much sat for the couch for the same amount of time. I used the dark grey RnR, 3-4 coats, after a quick clean with alcohol. I then applied a coat of Minwax soft touch and used a hair dryer to melt the wax, dabbing the excess.



    Initially, after the RnR process was completed, the spots needing the most attention were quite a bit darker. The wax blended well and the color matched. I’m exceptionally pleased that I did not need to go out and replace this electric couch that was in good shape except for the wearing away of the faux leather. Thank you for your money saving product.

    I was weary of not only my skills but also of how it would actually look if I essentially Painted my leather recliners. I have to say I am overjoyed at the results. The process was so easy. It was not like paint at all. It was so easy to apply and dried very quickly. I only did two coats- I probably should have done three but I am happy with how they came out. My chairs have a ton of folds and crevices so that part was a bit tricky and I don't think I fully covered them all but that has nothing to do with the product. Definitely Recommend!!!!!

    We recently moved long distance choosing to save only a few pieces of furniture. This included our leather sofa and ottoman. The brown color went great with our old house with all warm tones, but in the new house all done with cool tones, it really looked out of place. I really didn’t want to buy new just because of the color, so did a lot of research online & found your product. I took advantage of your customer service to get your opinion on the pet damage & discoloration plus advice on how much to buy, even received samples for the color selection. I also watched multiple videos on the application process, both those offered by RubnRestore, as well as some YouTube ones. One of the YouTube videos stresses not skipping the surface prep (same as on your website) and seems like most of the negative reviews on your product are from people who did not do the necessary prep and research. Yes, it took time to do the cleaning and repair steps, but it paid off with what looks like a new sofa and ottoman that look like they were designed for our new home. The recommended amount provided full coverage with plenty left for any repair. I did the ottoman first about 6 months ago to see how the product worked and held up before moving to the sofa. Not a scratch or sign of fading. I was also happy to be able to choose the gloss level in using the clear seal product on the final coat. Thanks to customer service for all your help and to RubNRestore for such a great product!

    I used Peppercorn Dark Grey with the clear prep finish. This is amazing. It is so easy to do but I recommend doing a final cleaning before you start with the rubbing alcohol and lemon juice mix that is spelled out in the instruction packet you receive. This really does remove all of the oils and finish and helps the leather absorb the paint. I also recommend using a shop light. I walked around my chair several times during this project with the shop light and found many spots I missed. I spent about 10 hours total on the chair. The color is dark grey but when I added the clear prop finish as my final coat it seems more navy blue. This works OK for us as our kitchen is navy blue. We let the chair dry for 3 days before using it. It has seen 2 weeks of use and there is no cracking or peeling at all. This is a great product. I will be ordering again to touch up our couches.

    Was a bit skeptical, but was ready to donate old Copenhagen leather recliner that had been my father’s favorite for 40 years. Never liked the gold color so it was worth the try. THIS IS SO AMAZING that it took this 65 year old only 90 minutes and 3 coats to get a new beautiful chair. All the tucks, folds, seams, buttons, just a bit of patience and VOILA! Still have plenty left in case it needs a touch up down the road. Thank you so much.

    I am thrilled with the whole process! I emailed the before pics and received a prompt email back with suggestions and advice. The project was easy to complete with all the information on the website, even for a newbie like me who spontaneously decided that I need my comfy leather chair back in my bedroom during COVID quarantine, but not looking like it did. It came out even better than I imagined!! Thank you so much! Highly recommend!

    I used your products on my couches and loved how they turned out! I only needed to utilize one bottle of the peppercorn and have quite a bit leftover, and the entire second bottle has not been touched. I truly appreciate the quick responses I have gotten from you throughout this process. Have been using the couches regularly with no dye transfer or issues at all. Highly recommend!

    First, I want to thank you for your guidance in the process of choosing the right color, and quantity of products I was going to need for the project.



    The experience with the product was good, it dries fast, so you can recoat the same day. I did 3 coats on the furniture, and a few retouches later, the next day.



    I\'m so happy with the result!! It feels I have a new furniture in home!!

    I purchased this Rub & Restore to dye an existing leather coffee table to match my new sofa set. The entire process took less than 30 minutes to complete. It dried to the touch in less than 30 minutes and cured within a day or two. Cece (mom) was really nice and helpful—She put my order on hold in order to send me some color swatches. Turns out, I would have received a color that was too light to match my sofa. So thanks a bunch to Cece for taking the time to help.

    I found a Leather Couch out to the curb in the wee hours on black Friday morning in 2013. My husband thought I was crazy for bringing it home because it was in need of some repairs and a good scrubbing. We have young kiddos and leather was ideal with clean up moving forward so I lugged the bad girl home. However a rusty red leather couch was not my color of choice. We have managed to live with big red for years because of it's perfect size + super comfy-ness. (And also lets face it, A FREE LEATHER COUCH!) Some how this year I stumbled across this product and I was blown away by the reviews and photos. Long story short, this once rejected couch is now the piece I always wanted to buy but could not afford. Thanks for the great videos on repair and application. Learned a lot and love my free couch even more!

    I also decided to Rub n' Restore our family hand-me-down recliners. They look so refreshed! I have been sharing this product with many family and friends.

    This is my second time ordering this product. I ordered peppercorn and used it on a chair I picked up at Goodwill. The chair was red leatherette in great shape and I changed color to peppercorn and it looks fantastic! My sister took my advice and did an entire couch, chair and ottoman. It wears great and take so little time. A true money saver!

    I love this stuff! I am so baffled that I can change my faux leather couches from a dark red to a medium gray and they look beautiful! Seriously, you can't tell that they were never a different color. Mine took 3 coats to look amazing. People are shocked when I tell them I dyed my couches. The texture is just the same as before I applied the product. I love this stuff!
