You CAN Paint a Vinyl Upholstered Chair! With AS Chalk Paint

DIY 7 days ago
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Pure White to paint an old, tired looking, vinyl chair. I used a darling Laurel Wreath Stencil to detail the chair and waxed the whole thing with AS clear wax. I buffed the wax immediately after applying it to the chair. Then I added another coat of wax and buffed that too. Dipped legs added a fun detail too.

    I wonder if I could do this with my recliner? I sit in it daily. How would it hold up? My recliner looks like the devel, but is still super comfy.

    Do you prefer Anne Sloan or something else? How funny! I bought my table at a barn sale last fall for...$2! coincidence! And we're both in Ohio. Great antique bargains here!

      Accentuations! Sallie Homza I use Annie Sloan and I do love it. I have found out that it's really not all natural ingredients like it was said to be and that makes me sad. But it's a good

    It turns out that there is a place in Millersburg at an antique mall. It's about an hour away and I usually go out that way once or twice in the warm weather. When I do, I will get a quart and try it...then maybe I can let you know what I think!

    Will painting vinyl chair in Paris Grey make the chair darker with clear wax ?

      Germaine Fraser Hi, It depends on the wax you use. So, if you leave the chair just plain with either of the chalk paints mentioned, it will be a dull chalky finish. Not a bad look - it depends on

    You inspired me to paint a chair. I used Amy Howard's Selznick Gray paint (same quality as AS, but $10 a can less expensive) If you dilute whatever paint you use with water, the fabric will remain softer. So far so good with mine. I then used the same

    Gosh this is so pretty! I love the dipped look of the legs! I'm going to have to try that. I painted a couch about two years ago and still use it to this day. It still looks the same as the day I painted it. :) I love trying to make things beautiful on a
