Default Anyone know how to darken a leather couch?

I don't know why anyone would know, but just by chance...

my sister is giving me a nice leather couch, but it's sort of a light/medium brown and i would much prefer a dark brown or a black...

is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

Shoe polish?

Krylon?

Pass out with diahrrea?

Or just be happy you have a leather couch and live with it.

I'm sure there are leather dyes out there that would do the trick.

I also have light colored leather furniture, it's almost impossible to clean.

There are plenty of leather treatments that will clean, protect and darken leather.

i work for a furniture store, and the only way ive ever seen the color of leather changed is by using an airbrush and special leather dye. This is for only small sections mind you, i don't know how one would go about changing the color of the entire couch.
