Rewarding project!!
I inherited an old bench with creases and worn spots. The leather was black and I purchased taupe. I have never worked with furniture before and it was so much fun. The project came out beautiful for a first time user. I will be back for more colors. I have told my friends about your fantastic products. Thank you for such a good product and experience and very informative directions.

I DID IT!
After I couldn't find anyone to save my loveseat I tried it myself.
Cut it open and added stuffing that went flat. I found Rub N Restore on the internet and gave it a try. After I got my custom color and other materials I followed all the video instructions and it turned out great. Thanks Rub N Restore

DEMONSTRATION VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE ARE EXCELLENT
I REPAIRED A LEATHER SOFA AND ARMCHAIR THAT HAD HOLES. THE DEMONSTRATION VIDEOS WERE THE BEST TOOL TO HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND THE STEPS CLEARLY. THE PRODUCT DYE MATCHED THE LEATHER PERFECTLY.

Amazing!
I was skeptical at first, but the finish worked wonderfully and saved us thousands in replacing furniture! While it definitely doesn't look brand new, it is a huge improvement and worth every penny!!

Match was perfect!
Application was easier than we expected. We did 5 coats then rubbed with soft cloth to bring out the shine. There were a couple rough spots on the chairs and we were advised to use 325 sandpaper which smoothed out the area and the color is still uniform. As you can see in the photos the custom match was perfect, we did arms and cushions and left the bottom of the sofa as is. We have 1/2 the color and 1/2 clear and prep remaining. We did a 4:1 ratio.

Love the results!
This leather recliner is about 5 years old and the leather on the headrest lost its color. My husband didn’t want to buy a new chair (😡) so when I learned about RubnRestore from a friend I decided to give it a go. Wow! The chair looks new! I originally ordered a 4-oz bottle of STONE but after testing, it wasn’t quite the color I wanted. Rather than return it I added black acrylic paint and 1/2 bottle of CLEAR PREP. With a kitchen sponge and Q-tips to get in those tight tufts, I applied 3 light coats using a circular motion to avoid streaking. Alcohol easily cleaned up any of my sloppy work (😜) and voila!

My husband and I are both happy with our investment of less than $50.

The 6+ ounces of RubnRestore products with the addition of my own black acrylic covered this large Lazyboy recliner perfectly with a bit left over to store in case I later discover I missed a spot.

Couch has an amazing new life with the treatment from Rubn'Restore!!! Definitely Worth the effort. Repaired couch 2 years ago then gave it to next door neighbor on the condition if not wanted it would be returned. The before photo is what I got back. The After photo is the brilliant result of Rubn'Restore!! The people at this company really care how we do. Look at the results! Would give Rubn'Restore 10 stars as they shine so bright!!!

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!
My objective was to complement the rust bamboo wallpaper in the alcoves of my living room. Nailed it!

I used on my pontoon boat seats not really impressed with results. Followed instructions but just did not seem to cover much of the discolored seats

I have been looking for a new leather sectional for a couple weeks and I happened to come across this ad for Rub n Restore. I didn't give much hope in restoring one of the arm cushions but I figured what the heck. I tried it and it is absolutely amazing. Looks like brand new. You saved me over $5,000 in purchasing a new leather sectional. Thank You.

My first project with Rub'nRestore products. Sofa bed was thoroughly vacuumed, cleaned and prepared as per your instructions and videos with your products and 99% alcohol. As in any project, through prep = excellent results. This colour proved to be most suitable for the original shade of blue. I did build up the colour with three light coats. Two coats was OK. However the third coat was the finishing touch needed.Used two coats of your Clear Prep+Finish Conditioning Sealer.

While I could have applied more coats of filler on the worst cushion and sanded for a finer finish, I chose not to. I stuffed the cushions with pillow batting to re-plump. I intend to donate this sofa bed to the Madoc Support Network or Habitat For Humanity. I believe whoever ends up with the unit will be most satisfied as it is presented. Your Rub'nRestore products perform most excellent, are extremely user friendly and made me think of the freedom of finger painting and abstract painting during the project. Next I will revitalize the matching sofa. Wishing you ongoing success and good health to you, your family, friends and acquaintances!
