Actually, this couch IS real leather. And it's been getting heavy wear for the last months -- since we painted it -- with no sign of peeling or cracking. I am thrilled with it!

after a while did the Paint start wearing off? DO u think it would work on real leather? Really nice idea.

Margot

It's wearing really well, too. And it gets a lot of wear. A silver ottoman sounds great! We can sell you Lumiere paint and ship it to Australia. Just send us a photo of the piece you are going to paint and I'll tell you how much paint you will need and what it will cost, plus what shipment costs will be. (The larger bottles are not listed in our online store.)

Great job you clever cookies! I even liked it just with the plain copper finish, probably because I'm too lazy to continue on :-) I'm thinking of painting my pleather ottomans a metallic silver too so I was very keen to see your blog. Thanks for the inspiration. Just need to find Lumiere paint in Australia.

Margot

Take photos! I can't wait to see. You can order 8 oz bottles of Lumiere from Dharma.

Suzanne

Great idea. I have a leather loveseat and I cant't wait!

Thanks! I should have included a note about something that made it extra fun -- we did the painting as a birthday part for me. And I AM enjoying it -- sitting on the couch now as I write this.!

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
