Yes, Leather Painting is a Thing!

Have a worn out leather chair? Don't throw it out... you can actually paint it. Yes, leather paint is real!
How many of you have leather furniture that looks just like this….. worn out in the butt area and faded where the sun hits it??
Notice also that the headrest area wasn’t faded…. just the rest of it. The chair was a mess.
This is the ReLuv leather paint that I used. It is amazing. The process is really quite simple, too. You can find a complete supply list and also where to find this fabulous paint on the post.
Here is a worn out shoulder spot and you can see how much better it looked after one coat of Reluv, but it still needed a little of the product ragged on right in the center to make it all more even.
The Reluv goes on super fast and dries well and it does NOT FEEL painted afterwards. It needs NO sealer (and all the angels in Heaven are singing over that). Another great thing is that it does NOT come off on your clothes.

If you feel like watching a video of how quick and easy it goes on, I have one listed on the post. Just please pretend that I don’t have stain splattered on my face and pretend my hair and makeup are done, ok???
