A Series on Painting Upholstery Coming and A Few Readers’ Painted Chairs

I was given some Simply Spray paint for upholstery to try. I almost used these fabric paints when I painted my chair, but they didn’t have the exact color I wanted, so that is when I created my own method.

I’ve since been asked about these paints, but could never give any experiential information as I had never tried them.  Now I have!  And, I can give you all the nitty gritty details and tips.

So, I am going to do 4 week series on these paints.  We’ll talk about how they differ from my painting upholstery method,  show various projects around my house using these paints, talk about how they performed, as well as tips on using these paints. So stay tuned!  Coming every Thursday for 4 weeks!  

I am not and will not be getting compensated for this series.  I just want to keep my readers informed of all the various ways they can paint upholstery in case one method is better than the next for their project.  You’ll be surprised at the differences with these paints versus my method – pluses and minuses.  So, stay tuned.

And, now for a reader’s painted chair in gray!

Isn’t she pretty?

Are you ready to hear more about Simply Spray in the upcoming week?!  Would that be helpful to you?  I thought maybe if I took the time to try them out and report back, it’d save you some time and money and help you to know what they work best with.

  1. I’m very interested in reading about the different methods of painting fabric. I’ve also seen fabric painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It would be great if you could give us feedback on this method.

    • I can’t imagine ASCP working well on fabric as it’s slightly textured and thick. However, perhaps if watered down enough and mixed with fabric medium, it works as well as any other paint.

  2. I am excited about the review, though with my luck these are probably not available in Canada. Not so thrilled about the 4 week wait, I have a chair i need to do… but then knowing me it will be a while before I start on that anyway. just anticipation kills me!

  3. I can’t wait!! By the way, I actually pinned someone using ASCP on a settee. Let me go find it…here it is…
    Amy at Mason Decor (her blog) and she painted a french settee in an Annie Sloan green! Not sure if she did anything other than paint out of the can on the fabric, or not.

  4. I am not sure I can wait for 4 weeks but I will try ~ I just have the perfect weekend for getting started coming up this weekend…..can you give us a hint and tell us which one you would do if y0u had to make a choice?

  5. can ok use the simply spray on any fabric…my couch looks so worn..and the fabric is piles and stringy ..how do i remove this first…
