Painting fabric upholstery with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
We painted the outdated upholstery on these antique chairs with a mixture of 50% Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and 50% water. We misted the fabric with a spray bottle of water with each coat of paint so that the fabric would absorb the paint and not be stiff. It took three coats of paint, with about 24 hours of drying time between each coat. We stenciled a french design on each chair using Annie Sloan Graphite. The blue stripe was stenciled with Aubusson Blue. We then distressed and glazed the arms and legs.

    We just moved into a house with heavy custom drapery. Will chalk paint work on this?

    On the can ofchalk paint it says that the paint contains ingredients that cause cancer and it also contains phalates which disrupt hormones. Can you explain how it is a good idea to be covering upholstered furniture with it?? I wouldn't use it for

      Agreed. Don't care for the chalk paint look myself, but have used acrylic craft paints and latex paint to do something similar.

    How about sofa pillows? Will that paint well?

    I'd like to know how you distressed the wood on the arm chair above as I would like to do that my familiar chair. Thanks you!

      @Andrea Schnapp you would use a fine grit sanding paper. Lightly distress to desired look.
