Cherrywood Vinyl & Leather Finish

(30 customer reviews)


Our Cherrywood is a burgundy or oxblood color for vinyl and leather.


Use it like a dye on aniline, full-grain leather and vinyl upholstery to:

  • conceal stains and fading;
  • condition and protect.

It applies easily with a sponge and will not alter the feel. It won’t peel or rub off onto clothing.

Each bottle comes with gloves and stir stick.

Before You Buy

Clear Prep+Finish™ or a glaze is strongly recommended to seal all reds.

Please read about dramatic color changes before undertaking one.

Rub ‘n Restore® products are not recommended for fabric, suede, nubuck or faux (bonded) leather. Learn more about material types or peeling bonded leather.

    Just completed the refinishing job. Looks great. The leather furniture was about 18 years old, faded, worn...with significant pet damage. Here are some before and after photographs.

    The color dye products work well. I wish there were smaller bottles available for small projects where mixing several stock colors is required, eg. a “sample set” of 3 colors in smaller amounts. Spending nearly $50 for an 8oz. bottle gets expensive very fast. The products are great and are easy to apply. The instructions are good supplemented by YouTube videos, etc. The fast drying moves projects along quickly and redoing is not always required depending on residual dye in the leather.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Thanks for the kind words, Marilyn. Wish we'd known you wanted a smaller quantity, as we do sell 2 oz. and 4 oz. sizes upon special request.

    The products were shipped as described and received quickly. It was helpful to order all the items I needed in one place. I repaired the arms on a leather recliner which I had cleaned too roughly and caused the top layer of the leather to peel and crack, and then break through in 2 places. The videos were very helpful to learn how to patch and fill the damaged areas. I had some difficulty getting the filler to smooth out, so I tried water with the wet sand paper, then wiped it with a rag and it smoothed out nicely. Now after applying the RubNRestore, the arms look almost new. This has saved my recliner for many more years of use. Another recliner had tears in the back, and the patching process greatly improved the looks, and then after filling and staining it looks much better as well. Sending the sample colors before I ordered gave me confidence I had the best color match. It is nice to have the ladies available for guidance.

    The product worked amazing for my chairs, couldn’t believe the difference, would definitely recommend, however my only problem was that being from Canada did not like the hidden charges I incurred....ended up very expensive...

    These charges are levied by the Canadian government.

    I attached an image of our blue sofa's, which are now brown.   Your choice of color was perfect.   It matches our pre-existing recliner chairs.

    Thank you! This was so easy to use, and my old, worn, about to be donated furniture looks amazing!!! Time to order more for the sofa and loveseat!
    Cat scratch repair on leather chair
    December 1, 2018
    I am so excited about the transformation of my loveseat! I was nervous but as my husband always says 'It's already broken, so what can you hurt?' The product worked exactly as advertised, it was perhaps a little more difficult as I wanted a mottled finish and I think an opaque might have been even easier. I put the pictures on my Facebook page and my friends are absolutely amazed and want to know what I used. Some said they actually had no idea that leather could be dyed! Thank you so much, I am now on a quest for leather furniture to Rub 'n Restore! You guys rock! P.S. The pictures of the arm are before and after of repaired cat scratches! I love your Youtube how-to videos!

    We recieved a free used aniline leather sofa set that needed TLC. We watched videos and read the directions carefully. It was so easy to use! The furniture literally looks brandnew! We are blown away and thankful for this product and the wonderful customer service. I can't wait to do another project.

    Turned out amazing love the color
    June 7, 2018
    Recently worked with the team at RNR to refresh a 15 year old leather sectional and matching recliner finished in a deep cabernet. Some of the cushions were so faded they looked tan in color. After sending a sample to be color matched we received a recommendation to blend two stock colors. Shipment was fast and everything arrived as promised.

    The process for refinishing the leather was well explained in the materials that came with the shipment. I was able to totally stain the sectional and chair within 2.5 hrs. After drying for about 4 hrs, I buffed out the color with a white cotton cloth to remove excess and minimize any color transfer. The cloth picked up some residual color and gave the finish a nice luster like polishing shoes. I could not believe the results!! The couch and recliner look brand new and the color match was perfect! The best $75 I have spent in a long time.

    Thanks to the RNR team for their help and their fantastic product.

    The cherrywood color looks great on my lounge chair!

    First of all the color looked like an exact match from the picture. Once it got here it wasn’t even close! Also I didn’t see the warning label until AFTER I used the product that says it causes cancer... now I don’t even want my kids touching my couch.

    I bought this product because we were going to have to replace our leather chair. I thought I would give it a try. It was very easy and made the chair look like new. We couldn't believe it. There was enough for our chair and for our daughter's sofa and loveseat. Their dog scratched it, and it was restored to like new also. I am reordering for a different leather piece. It is a miracle.

    Thanks for such a wonderful product! Absolutely! I have been telling everyone about the product and how much I love the way it turned out. The chairs were given to us and we were just going to hang on to them until we came across something better. Now I think I will keep them for myself :) I have attached before and currents pics. Take a look at the before and after of the cat scratches... amazing! Thanks for your assistance with this.

    As the manager of the Toledo Area Humane Society’s ReTail Resale Shop, I want to let you know how pleased we are with your product. We only accept gently used merchandise, so when a badly faded leather sofa was donated to our shop, we were wondering what we could do to make it sell. I even tried to give it away, but no luck. After searching the internet I discovered Rub-N-Restore, and quickly put in an order. I’m sending before and after photos to show what a difference your product made. We could hardly believe it was the same sofa! Badly faded by the sun, and water stained from the kids wet swimsuits, Rub-N-Restore transformed this castoff to a masterpiece! Once this beauty hit the sales floor it was gone! All proceeds benefit homeless and abused animals in the community, and thanks to Rub-N-Restore, our shelter pocketed a hefty profit! Thank you!

    Great product, at first thought it was too red but mellowed to soft reddish brown after glaze perfect
    March 7, 2017
    My sofa is peeling away. I grabed a small paint brush and brushed a few spots where it is just fabric now, and it looks pretty good! I know that the product won't repair my problem, but it helps a lot in that the dye causes the fabric to blend it with the leather that has not yet peeled off. So, I am pretty OK with it, does what I had hoped it would.

    I am an artist and i have done a lot of restorations with a lot of products and polyurethane and paints. This product is off the charts amazing (I bought cherrywood, buttercup, and espresso colors). It doesn't have noxious odors, doesn't stain anything except what it's supposed to stain, is completely brush - stroke forgiving, doesn't ruin my clothes, a project can be finished in a day....I could go on for pages! I will send my photos too but I just couldn't wait to say something because I am so happy I tried this product. Thank you!!! I think that's what I am trying to say, just Thank You!!!

    Yesterday I tackled my leather sofa and loveseat. I paid over $3,000 for the set a few years ago. The seating area was very worn. I was ready to toss it and get a new set until I did some research and found a place in California that sold color for leather and vinyl. I was blown away by the results. My couch and loveseat look almost new and it cost me $82! If you have anything leather (or vinyl) that you're ready to throw, check out my before and after pictures. I'm talking furniture, coats, shoes, pocketbooks and even boat seats, etc. Even if I have to reapply in 8 months, it's so worth it. I have enough color left to last years!

    I was very happy with the Walnut, Cherrywood, and Clear Prep Finish, and I will be telling everyone about this product. Thank you so much…my dingy couch looks brand new but the dogs aren’t too happy as I won’t let them back on it … LOL! I am going to do the love seat next and I may need more so I will be in touch…thanks again…great product!

    We were going to buy a new couch and decided to try this product before we did...we had nothing to lose. Well forget buying a new couch! It looks so good with just one coat and matched the color almost perfectly! Thanks so much to CC for her help too! So informative and helpful!

    I received the product last week and used it on my leather sofa I was cringing on having to replace. I used it as instructed and the sofa looks absolutely amazing. Now I can keep my sofa and enjoy it a few more years. Thanks so much for making the product available and saving me a lot of money!

    I had an aniline leather loveseat that had seen better days. It was stained, had a few cat scratches and was also the wrong color for my current decor. I found Rub 'n Restore while researching my options. I thought I couldn't go too far wrong so, after asking for and receiving samples (twice), I ordered the Cherrywood and Clear Prep+Finish. I had watched all the videos, so I proceeded to fix the cat scratches, then I made a glaze by mixing the two products to achieve a mottled finish. I could hardly believe how easy it was to get absolutely professional results! The loveseat is now proudly used in our home and I am on the lookout for other high-end leather goods to Rub 'n Restore! Thank you so much for your excellent customer service and such wonderful products.

    This company and it’s product deserve the highest possible rating for customer satisfaction. The customer service is excellent. The product is so easy to use that you simply cannot make a mistake. The finished result is absolutely first class and would be be proudly and prominently displayed in any home or business. Trust Rub ’n Restore to revive and refinish your leather furniture beyond your expectations and do not bother to shop any where else.

    I sent a sample to the company for a custom color. My furniture was so badly faded that even a custom color matched to the original would have required dyeing the whole chair. They analyzed the sample and recommended a mixture of Rust and Cherrywood and include a free empty bottle for easy mixing.

    I went from light gray to cherrywood on 2 theater chairs with ottomans. The coverage was wonderful. The product was so easy to apply. I watched many you tube videos before using the product. It helped in making the prep and application seamless!! I have a leather couch that could use some tlc and have plenty of stain left over. Can't wait to do it again.
