Nov. 18, 2021 | 04:59:30

Well-made leather office chairs are designed to last and support the user, but if you have had a leather office chair for a while, you may notice some damage and want to have it repaired. So how to repair a leather office chair?

Using Leather Paint

While using acrylic leather paint to paint any area on a leather office chair that has deteriorated over time does not necessarily have to fix it, it can certainly improve its appearance. All you need to do is purchase some acrylic leather paint and apply it to the affected area with a paintbrush. You may need to apply three coats of leather paint to get the best results. Finally, you will need to seal the leather paint with some acrylic finisher.

Using a leather repair kit

If you have a small tear in your leather chair, you can easily find leather repair kits online (they usually include instructions, fabric patches, leather glue, a pallet knife, some tweezers, and a leather finish), but you will need to purchase the right color for your office chair.

Unless you have a particularly small tear, you can repair the tear with one of the following leather repair kits.

▸ cut some fabric patches (it needs to be a little larger than the tear in your office chair)

▸ Tidy up the area by cutting off any scraps of leather 

▸ At this stage, you will need to slide the fabric patch over the tear (use tweezers if it's easier) and smooth it out

▸ Take your glue and apply it to the inside of the torn leather, once the glue is spread, push down and apply pressure (make sure you do this on both sides of the tear)

▸ Once the glue is dry, apply some leather filler to the seam of the tear

▸ Use the color compound to hide the seam and wait 2 hours for the color to dry

▸ You may choose to apply some leather finish - this will give your office chair a nice shine!

For small tears, you can repair the leather by gluing the torn pieces back together and using a filling cream. 

 

How to repair scratches on leather chairs

To improve the appearance of scratches on your leather office chair, simply apply a small amount of leather oil to the affected area and wait a while for it to dry. Once dry, apply leather conditioner and wipe away any excess moisture with a dry cloth.

For deeper scratches, you can try cleaning your office chair with a leather cleaner, apply distilled white vinegar, allow time to dry thoroughly and rub on some colorless shoe polish.
