DIY: Painting Leather With Velvet Finishes
Well good news!
You don't have to get rid of it - you can paint it with Velvet Finishes!
Painting leather with Velvet Finishes will
transform the old and ugly into the new and fabulous!
I snagged this ottoman at a consignment shop for a steal! It was dirty and the buttons were snarled with dog hair. Ugh. I used a shop vac to remove the hair and the Ready product to clean the leather.
The ottoman had nailhead trim that we were careful to avoid, but The Handler easily wiped off the paint that did land there with a damp cloth.
It was worth it, I love the chair!
I painted it's dainty little ball and claw feet with Bold and gave it's toes a a little brightening up with the Glamorous.
And see that awesome abstract pillow? I painted it with VF too!
This chair sits in my Velvet Finishes filming studio, where I film the VF youtube videos. Check them out, there is a ton of good info there!
I have people ask me how the leather/pleather feels after painting. Honestly, the feel even shocks me. It is as pliable as it was before it was painted. There is no cracking or any issues. Pretty cool!
So, do you have leather furniture that could use a makeover?

I had a deep green leather recliner, The chair was so comfortable that I didn't want to give it up when we moved. I took a chance, I found a paint called Finish All, a 3 in 1, that works for many different finishes. Yes, it seems expensive but my once green recliner is now a gorgeous charcoal gray. that goes well in my living room. I covered every inch of leather on the chair, I still have 1/2 of a container and I'm looking for something else to paint. I've told several people what I have done and I have to prove it. The chair loos fabulous. Check it out it is on Amazon
