This old sofa had great bones, but the color was dated so guess what?!! I painted it!

I used my Homeright Finish Max Fine Finish HLPV Sprayer to transform this sofa into something more chic and eye catching! I have painted several fabric pieces in the past but never something this big.

After one coat I was afraid I'd chosen the wrong project but several coats later, the sofa took on a new look! The key to this project was to keep going! Several thin coats were required before the new color started to settle in. But it covered very well!

This final fabric is not plush and soft but it is durable and rather spongy, if that makes sense. Check out the complete project ! This project was submitted to the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest for it's October Spray It Pretty theme sponsored by Homeright!

    Many articles on here also refer to using chalk paint and soft wax afterward. Think I'm going to try this on an old piece of fabric first just to see what it's like. These sofa makeovers are just beautiful!

    I'd love to change the color on my leather (not great quality) couches. Wonder if this would work??

      I painted an old leather chair with acrilec craft paint, and it was a perfect match, and was very flexable and soft.

    how do I cover or repair a leather couch, just the head of sofa, maybe about 4x8 inches

  • Rebecca Bentley

    I used chalk paint on two chairs, they turned out great, only needed two coats. Then I used a fine grit sandpaper to finish with a light coat of wax after.
