February 28th, 2016. Living Room, Unique Distressed Leather Living Room Furniture and How to Do It.
If you want to add character and warmth to your living room interior, consider tossing in distressed leather living room furniture, such as leather club chair or armchair, into the room. This kind of leather furniture style is renowned for being costly, but the sum of money you spend on it surely is going to be made totally worthy. Unlike modern furniture pieces that look best when they appear like new, leather furniture appears much more attractive when it is aging. Luckily, you do not need to have deep pocket or wait for years to have your own distressed leather furniture!
It is because of how you can also distress your own leather chairs as part of your leather living room furniture ideas. Transforming brand new and shiny leather piece can be a truly exciting project you can do during weekend—yes, it is a DIY project worth your time and attention.
To distress leather chair, you need to prepare these: rubbing alcohol, spray bottle, 220 grit fine sand paper, blow dryer, and old rags. And do not forget to take advantage of the beautiful hot sunny day outdoors to complete your DIY distress leather chair project! Start by spraying your leather furniture with rubbing alcohol put into a spray bottle. Spray the surface for about three times. Don’t forget to let each spray completely dry first before you spray it again.
Next, sand the surface down all over using the sand paper. The similar principle used when distressing wood furniture is applicable here. Sand the areas where natural signs of wear over time are common, such as the tops of the armrests, the top of the seat, the back of the chair, and the edges of the frame. We highly recommend you to sand more the areas where you want more wear and distressing. After you have done working on this step, you can see clearly the difference between new and shiny leather chair and distressed one. Wipe the furniture down with a wet rag after sanding so you can get rid of the grid. This way, you can see where you need to sand more.
The blow dryer can be used if you are impatient. Blow dry the leather furniture after you add more spraying on the surface, especially if the one you are working on different leather furniture piece, such as leather ottoman, you want to see having similar distressed effect with your, let’s say, leather armchair. Now you can explore the leather sofa sets for living room inspirations for placement and arrangement!
