DIY Leather and Vinyl Stain

Whether your genuine leather furniture is just very tired or is simply the wrong color, it’s easy enough to change.  I promise, changing the color of your leather is an easy DIY project simple enough for anyone to take on.

The steps are to first clean your leather with denatured alcohol and a rag.  If your leather is dirtier than you expected or older, you may need to put in a little more elbow grease.  If denatured alcohol and a rag don’t seem to be enough, than light scrub with a scotch brite pad or even gently sand with 220.

You’ll want to have a few sponges on hand and a squirt bottle with water.  Start layering your color(s) on until you like what you see. Each coat will dry quickly.  When you are happy, I like to mix some color with the sealer and apply about two coats so it’s not too shiney.
