5 Techniques to Painting Upholstery Successfully

1. Spray on Fabric Spray-  Simply Spray makes a fabric and upholstery spray.  It has good reviews and it definitely serves its purpose.  I just felt like I had to use a lot of coats to get the coverage I was going for.  It is a great option for a smaller project, or if you are going for easy, or less mess.  The end result was the same, but I felt like I needed 6 coats to every 3 of other methods.  For fabrics that are tightly woven, I would recommend a different method.  Simply Spray doesn’t soak into those fabrics as easily.

    What fabric medium are you referring to please? I’ve only seen small bottles of it in craft stores but they would probably be cost prohibative considering their size. Do you now of a brand that comes in bigger containers for such a large project?

    Many Thanks!

    I recently dyed an old sofa. Looks good….just put it on my pinterest board “projects in progress” My question is …how can I seal the dye to prevent it from rubbing off on clothing. Any idea ? What about scotch guard ?

    I’m more interested in how the fabric feels after it is painted- is it like sitting on plastic? Do any of the methods change the tautness of the fabric, or make ugly loose spots or wrinkles?

    I do trust all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
