Painting fabric upholstery with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

We painted the outdated upholstery on these antique chairs with a mixture of 50% Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and 50% water.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.

    This looks great!!! I painted a couch about 2 years ago and LOVED it. We still use it as our main couch today. It's super comfy and I'm so glad I did it. ( http://blissfullychicdiy.blogspot.com/2014/0...

    I have an upholstered settee that's only decorative. It's a fabric with a raised portion of it in velour/crushed velvet. Any idea how that might take the paint?

    How much paint did you use for both of the chairs? I am doing two wingback chairs and the lady at the store said 1 can would be enough but I seem to be going through it quickly. Mixing with water and misting before. Is it just the first coat that seems

    Do you think it would be possible to just lighten a fabric with a coat or two? I have a pair of accent chairs with a pretty fabric that just needs to be a little more subtle.

    Have you painted velvet? I'm concerned about the nap becoming all nasty. But I've inherited a cute little pinky-purple chair and just can't afford to reupholster. My very first thought was to paint...

    Just bought a very large ottoman today at a junk store and I want to paint the fabric. Should it be waxed? We will def use it to put our feet on-paid less that $50 for it!

    I wouldn't chalk paint any fabric unless I waxed it! The wax is what makes it feel luxurious. It has the feel of leather after it is waxed. Best thing I ever did.
