    I don't think painting it will solve the peeling issue.

    are you sure it real leather? Test it with fire...pull just a small piece of the covering from some where not usually seen...use tweezer to hold it and put a match to it. Real leather turns to ash. Foux leather clumps up. Paint won’t fix what’s wrong. Slip cover it..

    Painting will not fix the problem.

    If it's peeling, it most likely isn't genuine leather. It could be a composite, or pleather, which is just another name for vinyl. Faux leather is not real leather, and never will be, but unfortunately it is used in the industry to dupe buyers into believing they are getting value for a lesser price. Cheap is the clue word here.

    Please, don't bother going to all that time and expense of trying to repair something that won't fix. You have "bonded leather". That is a very thin coat of leather bonded to material and will continue to peel under the paint. Reupholster the couch, which is expensive or buy a new one.
