How To Refurbish Leather Furniture

January 12, 2018

There are many reasons our leather furniture could be in need of repair. Sometimes our pets scratch the leather accidentally with their toenails, or our kids play on the furniture not realizing that their toys can leave scratches. Other times we may want to go thrifting to find the perfect piece of furniture, but it may come with preexisting damages (to learn about what to look for in thrifting check out this blog post). Whatever the case may be, we are here to help you make that leather furniture look like new again.  

Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body was able to make this ottoman go from scratched and worn to looking brand new in just 20 minutes.

The Leather Cleaner and sponge are used first to remove dirt and grime from the leather. Once the leather is clean and dry, you can begin removing scratches using the Leather Scratch remover. If your leather has a deep scratch, you can use the E-Z Flow Leather Marker to repair it. The final thing to do is to keep that leather protected by applying the Leather Protector with a lint free cloth. Just like that your previously loved  leather piece is ready for its new home!
