I've painted a few upholstery pieces. Most people have heard of this by now.
I've used the small bottles of acrylic paints with fabric medium, on an old couch.
I used chalk paint on another piece I didn't post about.
This time I used latex and fabric medium.
This is such a neat chair. The fabric is in great shape, minus some piping trim it is missing on the back of the chair. I decided to paint it, my wrist can only withstand so much staple pulling. I do so much of it over the winter, I need to take a break when I can.
The customer wanted a blue chair with silver frame for her photography studio. I mixed the ratio of 1 fabric medium to 1 latex paint to 2 water.
This was my first time using this method, but it was the cheapest! I like the result. I turns out still a little stiff, but that softens with use.
Here is the final chair. Have you ever painted upholstery? If so, what is your favorite method?
