Our settee before and after

Hi i bought a settee from Csl 3 months after purchase all colour started to rub off from the leather after months of communication with Csl to no satisfaction i contacted furniture clinic . I was really happy with my conversation and home visit and decided to buy a kit to repair my settee myself . The kit included colour air brush prep tools everything i needed . I started by removing all the old colour then proceeded to sand my settee with 1200 grit sand paper (scary ) ha ha .after i used sponges provided to rub colour into the settee before spraying using airbrush and colour provided .All this was done in my living room and i must say im delighted with the results at a very small price for what I got .i cant recommend furniture clinic enough really helpful and excellent product
