Before - This is just so not me. :) I'm not into the flowery look at all!

Before - I didnt think this was to bad but I wanted them to match. So it got painted too!

This was what 1 coat of paint looked like. I sprayed the chair down with water to keep the paint from absorbing to much. I used 2 cups of latex paint, 2 cups of Textile Medium (Hobby Lobby - dont forget your coupon!) and 2 cups of water mixed together very well. I did 2 coats and then went to work on painting the wood.

I added a coat of Minwax Polycrylic to seal it! What do you think?! I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I was wondering what kind of paint to use on fabric.... awesome job.

  • Christine Sebesta

    I'm just wondering how the painted fabric feels to sit on. Is it hard and scratchy or soft and comfortable?
