    This stuff is AMAZING. Everyone who has witnessed the before and after of my furniture is amazed. My husband was absolutely shocked. The first coat almost gave me an anxiety attack because I didn’t know what to expect, but I trusted the process! One 16oz bottle was used for our large leather sectional (3 coats) and recliner (6 coats because it was originally darker than the sectional). It’s so nice to have matching furniture that looks brand new and really brightens up the room. And you cannot beat the price/quick shipping. I bought an extra bottle just in case one wasn’t enough, but I can’t wait to use it on other projects.

    Mixing 4 parts Rust with 1 part Persimmon, per Lesandre's suggestion, was pretty close and I used the mottling technique, so the color blends into the natural color variations in my sofa.

    Overall, I'm very satisfied in the restoration. It was easy and fun to experiment with the colors. Best of all I saved my sofa and it looks amazing.

    Thanks again!

    I've had these chairs for many years and as the ugly stains darkened with time, I was ready to get rid of them and replace them. But then I found Rub 'N Restore - now they have been transformed and I love them! The process was so easy.  I used 1/2 Cognac and 1/2 Rust. It took 4 layers to hide the dark stained areas (I applied thin layers). Any questions I had were promptly answered too.  What a great product!!

    My daughter, who gave me the couch and recliner purchased them about 18 years ago and by the time I got them they had a weathered (worn out look). Only took 2 people 2 hours.  Now they look brand spanking new.  Of course, they only had light use in her home for about 15 years.  I finally had to hire someone to do it....I cannot remember if I sent you photos before.

    Used 3 thin applications of the 'rust' color on my couches. I purchased the clear Prep and Finish but did not use it, as I liked the result as it was. It was very easy! Applied with a damp sponge only -- the product dries literally in minutes so the project goes fast and there is minimal mess. I am not usually a good 'do-it-yourselfer' but I was really, really pleased!

    I noticed your ad on the internet and was impressed with the videos explaining how to restore leather sofas.  I was still little intimidated until I called and discussed what was recommended to refinish my project.  After experimenting with Cognac and Rust colours, the best colour was produced by 50% rust and 50% the clear finishing sealer. As I had a sofa and a love seat to do I wasn’t sure I had enough rust in the 8 oz bottle, however I was able to finish with 2 coats on the both (there were some original spots that I lightly touched up).



    I can’t say enough about the feeling of comfort that I felt in dealing with your company, it felt as if I was dealing with friends and not some numbers. After establishing what we thought was needed it was delivered in a very short time.  Following the instructions it was easy to turn a faded sofa and love seat into  a set that will give years more service.  Thank you, I will certainly recommend your services to others.

    I have a dinette set with four vinyl chairs that swivel and that are on casters ... very 1980-ish !! I was going to leave them behind when I moved since the chairs have faded in spots from being in the east window for so long. But since my grandkids seem to love these chairs, and I couldn't find anything like them in furniture stores, I decided to restore them !!



    I wrote CC/Lesandre telling them what I wanted to do; they wrote back and even talked to me over the phone, and eventually sold me the small amount I needed to get the job done; 2 oz. Rust dye, 2 oz. Cognac dye, and 4 oz. of Clear coat. This saved me lots of $ rather then if I had had to ask for a custom color, or bought 8 oz, bottles of each !! In fact to do the four chairs, I only used about 1/2 oz. total, so I got lots left.



    The tricky thing is the chairs had these random dark lines like an alligators skin (Lesandre called it a marbled-look), which I still wanted to show through, so I had to make a somewhat transparent glaze, by mixing the three products in the proper proportion. CC gave me advice on how to do this. So this review is more for their personal service than the Rust colored dye itself !! :-0

    Bought a new spa cover 3 years ago for $450.00 from my spa outlet store and within a year it started to fade. After 3 years the top was dry and very faded and the stitching was coming apart. Came across your product on line last month and decided to give it a try. I cleaned and restitched the cover and applied 3 light coats of dye and three coats of top coat. The top looks new again for $50.00 worth of product and I still have enough to do another two coats in the future. I live in a Northern climate and would suggest doing this in the garage or basement for extended curing time. Thank you for a great affordable product and I will update you on its durability after the winter has passed.

    I found your product when I was searching around for a paint to use on my hideously dirty and questionably hued patio furniture. I've worked with a lot of paints and stains and Rub and Restore was really easy to work with. I had two chairs and a settee cleaned and done in half a day, and applying the sealer only took me about an hour. I actually used much less stain than I thought I would. Pictures are worth a thousand words. I was working with Rust to cover a sickly pink vinyl that was stained with dirt.
