I Spray Painted a Sofa!

167,589 Views
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!
And here she is all prettied up and ready for date night in front of the TV!
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!

    I have heard about fabric painting furniture, but with a sprayer? Even better, ingenious!

    DOES THIS GET KRINKLIE OR SCRATCHIE, OR PEAL?

      @Donna K. Doesn't peel or krinkle. In one spot I went to heavy on the paint so it's not as soft here. But, normally folks sand between coats and this helps soften the finished product. I'm just lazy!
