    Thank you for all of your help!   
    I purchased a Forest Green recliner and needed to change the color to match our decor.   I watched many videos and checked many different brands of “dye” and their websites to figure out what I should do.  Most gave no instructions on what to buy or how to use it, or they were very confusing.   Your products, your information and instructional videos are “hands down” far superior to everything I researched.   I am very happy with the results, and look forward to another project in the future!

    Think your furniture is on its death bed? Think again!
    I've have officially managed to salvage my 20 year old leather couch set, and it’s a miracle. I can’t say that it was a walk in the park, but I can say the the results are fantastic and will extend the life of these pieces, which were previously on their death bed. While it doesn’t change the slightly outdated, puffy furniture look, I am ultimately very pleased with the results. The furniture looks nearly as good as new and is an exciting new color!

"Slate" I followed the instructions and truly appreciated the video tutorials. As with any project, it's all in the prep work! Cleaning, patching, and applying the soft filler compound had to be done meticulously. Painting was the "fun" part. We felt as if we were bathing an elephant. I've done a full blog post which contains additional images and feedback. I highly recommend these products.

    This product was recommended by a friend. I chose slate for my leather sofa which was originally saddlebag brown. Sofa had some oil stains which I was looking to cover. Coverage was amazing after two coats, sofa like new. I took pep recommendation using isopropyl alcohol prior. Dried very quick. There is done odor to product until it is dry so ventilate. You won’t be disappointed!!!! Thank you!

    We’re moved and have been using the chair and couch for a couple of weeks. Everyone thinks I bought a new set! I couldn’t be more pleased! I love it!  I would recommend and have to anyone needing a color change. Thank you for all your advice and videos. That made it so easy to do!

    Ok- after reading all of the reviews I decided to jump in and take on my own project (in lieu of spending $10k+ over buying new). Here's my thoughts after completing 1 couch: Absolutely amazing result. Almost unbelievable. Very painstaking and time consuming (6 hrs on the couch) but well worth the result. Took 4 + coats as I was making a major color change. I suggest starting in an area that won't be seen (if possible). Best applicator I found were wax applicators from the auto parts store (none are included with the product).

    Absolutely amazing result. Almost unbelievable. Very painstaking and time consuming (6 hrs on the couch) but well worth the result. Took 4 + coats as I was making a major color change. I suggest starting in an area that won't be seen (if possible). Best applicator I found were wax applicators from the auto parts store (none are included with the product). Definitely want to dampen the applicator before applying and to eliminate any streaks in the final coat - wet the sponge a bit more. This is the trickiest step. Again- results are amazing. Hair dryer is a critical tool for quick drying between cushions and subsequent coats. I did not use wax paper after application and had no issues. Can't say enough good things about the product and the owners. Great customer service. The only 2 items I would mention: the color samples they sent me were a bit darker than my finished product but that was fine with me. Also, I can't speak to the longevity of the finish as I just completed my project a week ago. Good luck to all! You wont be disappointed.

    I LOVE LOVE this team and product! I bought a hot tub since we have to stay home during these times. The only one that was available was this bright green one. Unless you wanted to spend 3-4 times more. I was going t to spray paint it but then came across RubNRestore. I emailed them with my project and questions and they told me what to get and HOW to do everything. I had to get Clear Prep+Finish™ Conditioning Sealer and the pigment color Slate. I was a little worried because sometimes they make things look too easy. Well with the help from Lesandre I was able to make a cheap hot tub look super nice..

    I was able to extend the life of our 18 year old sofa, loveseat and ottoman. This set has been used by my family with 4 kids for 18 years. I prepared each piece by vacuuming and then wiping it down with rubbing alcohol on a damp t shirt. I sprayed my sponge with a spray bottle of water and then added a couple of coats of the slate color. I sprayed my sponge with water every so often. I recommend having good ventilation. It takes patience and I worked in short spurts of no more than 45 minutes or so. I topped it with a sponge sprayed with water, 2 squirts color and 1 squirt sealer. When I tried the sealer alone it was too shiny for m...More

When I tried the sealer alone it was too shiny for me. I tried to remember to stir the color now and then. My husband made a tool to cover the upholstery nailheads to facilitate painting around them. This was a game changer!

    These ladies offer great customer service. I emailed and called with questions and they were patient and quick to respond. Thank you!

    First time using this product and it’s so easy to use, I cleaned the couch real good with the rub & restore leather cleaner, then I used the clear for a base coat then 4 to 5 thin coats then I finished up with a final coat of the clear coat, and the results are amazing the couch looks brand spanking new, I highly recommend this product.

    Thank you! I was going to get rid of this couch because it didn’t match my room. It turned out beautiful. My family and friends cannot believe the difference! Thanks again!

    This is an amazing product! I bought it to paint a 28 year old couch, which is currently in our basement family room. It was a great quality couch, but old nevertheless not to mention the burgundy color, no longer matched the new decor. The product arrived as expected. I read in the instructions that to change a color from the deep burgundy to gray it would most likely take 3-5 coats and was fully prepared for that. I have only applied one coat as of right now. The product goes on easily and the coverage is great. The couch is completely covered and already looks brand new. I will definitely add 2 more coats tomorrow. I am extremely ...More

    We had two green leather storage benches that don't go with our new decor, but I just couldn't bear to let go of them. Purchased the Slate leather color to bring these benches into our new look. Love the results! I also used their cleaner before coloring, and finished off with clear finish. After reading directions and reviews, I used a mixture of 2 parts color to one part of the clear finish and achieved a satin finish (just using the clear coat produces a high gloss finish that I did not want). My pieces were in good condition (about 6 years old) and did not need repair products. Very happy with the outcome. Fyi, I ema...More

    Fyi, I emailed a couple of questions along the way and received a great response in hours, not days. Great customer service!

    Easy to apply, but beware this is a very thin product. I managed to spill about 20% of my 16 ounce bottle but still had plenty to finish both benches.

    Highly recommend this product.

    My husband and I can still not believe what a wonderful job your product provided! It is not difficult to apply and our chair and ottoman looks brand new! The sun had really bleached the leather and now it's just gorgeous! Thank you also for your help in choosing the correct color - it was perfect!

    Was very pleased with my results. Needed 4-5 coats. Since my project was a double reclining loveseat, there were lots of overlapping sections. A hairdryer was most helpful.
