      @Jessie Meadows I only used a primer for the chair legs, not the material. If you take a look at the post on my blog it gives names of paints and details. :)

    I just bought a used tufted barrel chair I will be picking up today. I want to try painting it until I can get around to tackling a reupholstry job on it. Just wondering how these have held up?
