    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!

    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! It's not impossible but just prepare yourself, make a nice beverage before hand and get to work. It will be worth it in the end. Brava Rub n Restore Women. This is amazing!!

    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!

I wanted to buy a new Pottery Barn Chair in tan leather to go with my cream sectional but it was over $3800! I order the rub N restore rust and it was quick, easy and the result are amazing.

    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!

    We have been trying for some time to decide between replacing our aging leather couches or restoring them. I came across the Rub n Restore web site while I was looking up leather dyes. I read the reviews and looked at the pictures and that prompted me to give it a try and I'm glad I did.



    We were not sure which color would work best for our couches and I went ahead and ordered test samples with the 4 colors we thought might work.

    The colors on the computer look different from the actual colors and I really recommend them, it saved time and by allowing us to order the correct color and helped us decide on whether or not to use the finishing/sealer product to get the look we liked.



    I was able to refinish two full size couches in one day. I followed the instructions and cleaned the leather using rubbing alcohol. I took the smaller pieces and applied the dye in the garage. Since we were not changing colors, the dye covered in one application. by the time i was done with the six cushions, they were dry enough to apply the finish. It only took one coat of each product to achieve the desired result. I bought the largest bottles because I wanted to make sure I had enough to refinish both couches and in the end, I had about 1/4 of each bottle left over.



    I did the rest of the couch in our living room. I was afraid of strong fumes and opened up all the windows to allow for adequate ventilation. The smell was not that strong to me and it was pretty much gone by the next day.



    This product worked as advertised and I really recommend it. Our couches look very much like the ones already on the website of successful projects and I did not take any "before" pictures, so I am not posting any of my own.



    This product works and does what is advertised. I give it my strongest recommendation!

    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!!

    I was super excited to try this product, but I'm slightly disappointed. I followed all the directions but some spots didn't cover as well or looked slightly streaky, even with multiple coats. Also my chair is sitting against a wall and rubs off onto the wall. Chair look decent but had higher hopes. Color looks great.

    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
