Painting fabric upholstery with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Decor Ideas 12.11.14
We painted the outdated upholstery on these antique chairs with a mixture of 50% Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and 50% water.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.

    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.

    I chalk painted my dinning room chairs. How long do I have to wait before "using" chairs after waxing them? Thanks!

    I just finished a roll back living room chair. I misted it with water and used watered down Annie Sloan. It took 3 cans. Then I waxed it tonight. I'm so disappointed because it chipped off while waxing. Now I'm wondering if it will actually be useable.
