Leather Repair

I recently bought a used leather couch for use at my dining room table.  It is wonderful!  But I got a great deal on it because it was used, and it was not in perfect condition:

 The leather was pretty beat up.  So I decided to try and repair it.

First, I cleaned the leather.  First with a brush and a little dish soap.  Then, for the more damaged areas, I also cleaned it with saddle soap.  Then I ordered a leather color and repair kit from amazon.  I was hesitant to try and mix a color to match, but I figured it was worth a try.  I mixed up the compound, didn’t think the color was perfect but tried it anyway.  It worked AWESOME!

 The right side has been treated, the left side has not.  Pretty cool, if you ask me…  and now my dining table couch is even more perfect.
