Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit (duh!)

Rubbing alcohol or leather/vinyl cleaner

Cotton swab or cotton pad

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

Plastic wrap (optional, for adding texture to the repair)

Step 1

Preparing the Damaged Area

  • Carefully trim any excess threads, jagged bits, or burn marks from the hole on your leather ottoman
  • Cut off any charred material if necessary

Step 2

Cleaning the Area

  • Clean the area around the burn mark on your leather love seat with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
  • Make sure to test it on a hidden area first. If alcohol is harsh for your material, you may use warm, soapy water or your usual leather or vinyl cleaner.

Step 3

Backing Fabric (if needed)

  • For burn marks larger than 1/4 inch, cut a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, slightly larger than the damaged area.
  • Insert it into the burn mark with the spatula provided in the kit.

Step 4

Mixing the Repair Compound

  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided

Step 5

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the damaged area on your leather love seat.
  • Start by applying it under and along the edges and work from the outside toward the center.
  • Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.

Step 6

Drying and Additional Layers

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch on your leather love seat.
  • Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.

Step 7

Adding Texture

  • To add texture to your repair finish, tear off a slightly larger piece of plastic wrap
  • Press it against the semi dry final layer of the repair compound
  • When you lift your hand off, the area will be slightly textured
  • Repeat this process until you’ve achieved the desired texture on your leather love seat

Step 8

Finishing Up

  • Once the repair compound is completely dry, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repaired area. This will ensure a smooth and seamless finish on your leather love seat.

Step 9


  • Wipe your love seat down with a damp cloth or leather cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
  • Avoid exposing it to direct heat sources or open flames to prevent future burn marks.
  • Use coasters or placemats under hot dishes or drinks to prevent accidental burns.
  • Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather and restore its natural shine.

And there you have it! Your leather love seat is now looking as good as new. Remember to take your time, and don't hesitate to ask for help if needed. Happy love seat repairing!
