Reader’s Painted Chair – White and Purple

One of my readers sent me this fabulous chair redo!  She painted it all, fabric and wood using my tutorial.

Before and after.

The white paint is a high gloss white paint and primer in one that she had on hand.  For the fabric, she just used a $5 sample of a purple latex paint.   She used three coats.


She said the hardest part was where the fabric touched the wood. She taped it off and did a great job!


Thanks for sharing, Andrea.  Have you painted upholstery?



  1. It looks great! I definitely need to try this soon!

  2. Just came across your blog! So glad I did…For sure becoming a new follower and scrolling back for more great posts!

  3. I’ve been meaning to comment about your fab chair, but then it slipped my mind. I love this idea!!! I would be soooo nervous unless I bought the chair knowing I was going to paint it. I love how your color options would be limitless! I’m gonna have to give this a try with something. I did paint my outdoor umbrella. Does that count? I’ve also seen painted lamp shades around blog land. I didn’t link to the pink chaise but I can’t believe she was able to cover the pattern. I see it showing through in most. VERY exciting idea! Love your colors.
