I like to keep my reader’s up to date on the painted upholstery front. This is the latest information that I found. A Pinterest Addict is back with more painting tips. This time instead of latex or acrylic paint, she used Tulips Fabric Spray Paint that she found at Michael’s.
Here is how it turned out! Isn’t the color great?!
Here it is before.
She used four bottles of Tulip’s Fabric Spray Paint and could have used a couple more!
She said it’s not crunchy at all, so perhaps this would be a great type of paint to try on upholstery! If you try it, let me know!
Here is the chair after one bottle of the paint.
Check out her blog for more information. The only drawback that I found is that there seems to be limited colors available.
There is another paint I just read about on Not Just A Housewife. DecorArt’s SoSoft fabric paint.
She painted this chair that she bought at ReStore.
She emphasizes how important it is to water down the paint and really work it into the fabric. She’s right – if it sits on top, it’s more likely to be crunchy. She also found that sitting on it helped to soften it and ended up sanding it a bit. Check out her full explanation of what worked for her here.
Have you painted a chair? What works for you? What paint do you prefer?
