I’ve a leather-based sofa that we acquired about 7 years ago. It’s the Hamilton Sofa from West Elm and we’ve beloved this sofa! It’s been used day in and time out by our household. Aside from possibly spot cleansing right here and there, I haven’t accomplished something to maintain this conditioned. And I do know, I ought to have been. So I made a decision it was time to refresh our leather-based sofa.
It’s undoubtedly displaying it’s age, with cat scratches and random spots right here and there. (You’ll be able to see the earlier than picture proper beneath). I do not know why the one again cushion is all noticed (the freckled cushion I suppose). But it surely was the pale look of the cushions that was actually bothering me.
Though I used to be greater than able to refresh our leather-based sofa, I used to be feeling fairly nervous to do that. I didn’t wish to destroy my sofa! I documented my entire course of by video, so you may watch that beneath. And naturally, plenty of photographs right here within the put up too!
I began by giving the sofa wipe down after which vacuumed it.
I used Leather Honey leather-based conditioner. It had actually good opinions, so I made a decision it could be a protected one to attempt.
I first examined it out on the facet of the cushion, a spot you don’t see, simply in case it did one thing bizarre. I may undoubtedly see a distinction instantly. The leather-based grew to become darker and richer wanting. I let that sit for some time, once more simply to make sure it wasn’t going to destroy it or something. As soon as I used to be certain that it was protected for my leather-based sofa, I went forward and tackled the entire thing!
What do you’ll want to refresh a leather-based sofa:
Sure, to refresh a leather-based sofa, you simply want a pair fundamental cleansing provides, plus leather-based conditioner.
I used Leather Honey leather-based conditioner and it labored nice on my sofa! I discovered that it was greatest to pour the leather-based honey onto my fabric, and sort of work it into the material, so there wasn’t an enormous glop of it going straight onto the leather-based. It may well go away darkish streaks or spots if it goes on too heavy. You’ll be able to wipe these spots down although with a clear fabric, and as soon as the leather-based honey soaked in and dried, I couldn’t see these spots. However I believed it went greatest if I let it soak into the material and simply utilized it calmly to the leather-based, after which simply continued to go time and again it.
The fast distinction it made was fairly apparent. There’s a couple of photographs beneath that present the distinction between the cushions that had the leather-based conditioner and one which didn’t.
Earlier than and After of Leather-based Sofa Refresh:
It actually made a giant distinction! The lighting hits the sofa in another way, relying on the angle and the way vibrant it’s, so it wasn’t at all times straightforward to seize by picture and video. However in particular person, it actually was a giant distinction and appears so a lot better. Fluffing up these again sofa cushions helps too after all!
Beneath are some earlier than and after photographs of the sofa. You’ll be able to nonetheless see spots and marks on the sofa, however to me, that’s simply a part of the character of leather-based. I’m going to do one other coat quickly, I believe it may use it, simply because I hadn’t accomplished this earlier than and the leather-based appears fairly dried out. So possibly it’ll get even higher with extra purposes!
So what do you assume? General I’m so proud of how this turned out and need I’d have accomplished it sooner!
