How To Paint an Upholstered Chair

Prev1 of 6Next

The success you find in your projects depend mostly on the product that you use. So, the first step is to identify your project and the paint you want to use. To find a chair or couch or something to transform, I would recommend going to garage sales or second hand stores.

I never dreamed you could paint fabric, I always assumed it would turn out stiff or rough until I found out about some awesome fabric paint products!  This is just a fun thing to do, to take a piece that you have already had, or even a new second hand couch or chair and transform it into a new accent piece!

This method can also be used for carpeting, upholstery, draperies, rugs, lamps, and any other cloth or fabric.

    This is fantastic! Where is the best place to buy the SoSoft paint and about how much did that blue chair use? I have an antique upholstered chair that is done in the tacky 1970’s gold/orange/green/brown; however the chair itself is gorgeous. The material is done in patchwork squares which are 3″x3″ and is very dark and bold, and the texture is not smooth. I wonder if… 1) Could I cover up those dark colors completely with fabric paint? and 2) How would the paint soak in evenly because of the texture of the fabric? Any advice? Also, what color was your chair before you painted it?
