Transform an old piece of leather furniture into a modern showstopper with easy to use leather paint.
1. Gather your materials - leather paint, prep and finisher
To transform this old espresso brown leather dining bench into a modern grey that matched the look of my home, I used Angelus brand leather paint, prep and finisher.
These paint materials were bought direct from the manufacturer and very reasonably priced.
However, the paint cannot withstand cold weather, so plan your shipping method accordingly.
2. Get ready - clean and prep
The first step is to prep the area by wiping the leather clean with a damp cloth and laying a drop cloth down to protect your floors.
Depending on your furniture piece, you might want to disassemble the furniture to separate leather parts or protect non-painted areas with painters tape.
3. Prepare and deglaze - help the paint adhere
Prep the leather surface with Angelus Leather Preparer and Deglazer.
This first step helps the paint adhere to the surface and is especially important if the leather piece you are working with has a glossy or vinyl sealant.
This step is not recommended for suede.
