    Amazing!
    I was so intimidated by this project but I am so pleased with how it came out! It took me about two days using 2:1 Rust and Clear to get it where I wanted; somewhere between 2-3 coats. My couch is finally the color I wanted it to be (bought it on consignment) and I feel like I have the skills to touch up as needed. If you are feeling nervous, just go slow and trust the process! If you have questions, their consultants are also super helpful.

    Very disappointed with this product. I followed all the steps correctly and my leather is a non absorbent vinyl . So all care was taken and I sealed it as well . It’s only been 2 weeks and the paint is coming off . Not happy .
    Reply from Lesandre Barley:
    As we discussed via email, a cloth with water is inadequate, especially for a dramatic change of color on a water-repellant / non-absorbent leather. Cleaning instructions are here and in the brochure that came with your order. We can't guarantee results if instructions are not followed. Had we an opportunity to consult on your project prior, we would have guaranteed your satisfaction.

    My leather sofas look like they’ve been in the middle of the desert for 20 years. Robin restore worked miracles. They look brand new! I think I had the whole job done in an hour.

    Better then expected!
    This product really works, the texture of the leather is just the same as before too, which is amazing! My mom gave us her older dark (almost black) leather living room furniture, which included a 3 seat couch, oversized chair and ottoman- I am on a budget so I decided to get as much done as I could with the large 70 oz bottle. I was able to apply 2 coats to each piece which alone made a huge difference! I do have a very small amount left in the bottle, but not enough to do a third coat on everything which I think would make it look even better
    AFTER: Chair re-colored to RUST!

    What a Transformation!
    It was an amazing and simple way to change the color of my leather chair. I'd recommend this process to anyone!

    Sponge-dyed armchair & couch in one day!
    Love the way the color spreads on with an ordinary sponge, and dries super quick! The Rust color turned out to be a shade lighter than our pieces, but it also gave them a fresh new look. Wasn’t planning to recolor the scratched sofa, but since it only needed sanding (not filler repair), I’m so glad I did! Before and after pictures tell the story. I can’t say enough about the clear videos & prompt email communication with Lesandre & the RnR team!! So great to deal with a family business—these people know their stuff!
    My objective was to complement the rust bamboo wallpaper in the alcoves of my living room. Nailed it!

    Grateful for Cassandra
    I purchased a living room set online that was NOT the color I was promised and the company would not take them back. Rub n Restore came to the rescue! The application process has a learning curve but Cassandra was great in answering any questions and offering suggestions to get me over the issues I had. I definitely would suggest paying for the upfront consultation fee if you have concerns. I like that I could make the finished product look as matte or glossy as I choose. Hoping the finish holds up and provides many years of use!

    Sooo Happy

    I was ready to give away our once beautiful sofa after years of family use. It was badly faded and stained. The sofa also had scratch marks from our dog. We recently remodeled our living room and it looked so out of place. I had refinished another chair with success but felt this sofa project was simply too far gone. I’m soooo happy I gave the product a chance!

    Wow 🤩
    I have to admit, I did NOT expect it to be as easy to apply as it was. They make it simple with great instructions and it turned out amazing. My couch will be with my family for years to come thanks to y’all! Highly recommend.

    I have to tell you I was prepared to be disappointed but before I had the first coat done on the first cushion I was sold. This far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to get a little more life out of a beloved piece. I have not used the sofa or had a chance to see how well the wears but I suspect I will be just as pleased as I am now. A word of advice for any piece with nailhead. I am an upholsterer and I find setting nailhead very therapeutic but working around nailhead with this product and cleaning it up after is a real bi@%h!

    I wasn't looking forward to spending over $500 and hours of restitching to replace the leather on my sailboat helms. This product exceeded my expectations and looks almost like new. Scuffs and wear marks are nicely filled-in and the Rust color looks factory fresh. Fingers crossed for survival in salt and sun!

    Unbelievable Results
    I recently bought some very high end couches that had been thoroughly destroyed by cats and sun damage. I initially thought I could fix them up with some leather conditioner, which proved me wrong. I ran across Rub N Restore as well as a variety of products out there that promised results. The price seemed steep, but I went ahead and took the chance. I cannnot believe the end result! The process is easy if you take your time and follow the instructions.

Don't get me wrong, I spent a lot of time to get to the end result, but I am thrilled with how the couches look now. I ultimately chose this product due to the great tutorial videos (especially those addressing cat damage). One caveat: I had hundreds of decorative nail heads and the product description for the steel wool says to paint over the heads and then use it to remove to remove the product. Apparently that guidance has changed and I didn't realize until it was too late. I spent hours removing the stain and ultimately it did mostly come off, but it was the worst part of the whole project. Read the pamphlet that you receive to understand the nail head instructions prior to painting over them!

    Had to share!! It's hard work but worked like a gem! I only used about 1/5th of the 16 oz bottle, unbelievable! This was three coats. Yes…I could have done more to make it “perfect”, but my back was shot at this point and I was happy enough! I plan to lay a faux hide across it, so I am letting it cure for a week first.
