Great results!

This product is fantastic, but you've got to have patience. The attached photo is the before-and-after results of a destructive cat on my favorite leather chair. I haven't finished it, but I'm taking my time so thought I'd post it now. This job was refused by two leather repair places! My friends can't believe it when I show it to them.
