Updated photos of my chairs from May 2012 can be found here, so you can see how they look after 15 months.

 

SUCCESSES USING MY METHOD
Thank you all for being inspired and willing to give it a try!  There are some great transformations below.  The text above the image tells who created it.  Some are links to complete blog posts they did on the process and their experience. 

What a great way to upcycle!  Drop them a line letting them know what a great job they did.  I will be updating these often.  Feel free to send me photos of your painted chair or links to projects that you know about that are not listed here.

I wanted to be sure to show other ways to paint upholstery, as it may be helpful as you do your research.   Note:  I did an entire series exploring Simply Spray Upholstery Paint.   Check it out if you are interested in fabric spray paint as the posts will answer many of your questions.
