Before and after photo of leather chair restoration

Our customers are thrilled with 'new' leather furniture they restored themselves.

I finished re-staining the Natuzzi furniture.

It only needed one coat of color! The mixture was two parts mahogany to one part rust to one part cherry wood. I applied it with a rag for one coat. And then applied two coats of the clear with sponge. I would give it five stars! The whole project was fairly simple and was doable in a weekend which included prepping the surfaces with the alcohol, sanding rough spots, prepping with the clear on worn areas, applying the color and then the two clear coats. I feel like I like I have new furniture! - C.S.
