    Read your blog. This looks very pretty. Though I'd never waste that much money and time on cat perches (I'm not a feline fan on a good day anyway).

    I used craft paint watered down a bit and painted it on with a brush. It is my favorite chair and is sat in everyday for at least 10 years. Doesn't really fade any either.

    Since I didn't use fabric medium, V Valencia, they have more of a vinyl feel...which I'm actually liking (no cat hair). In the link to my tutorial above, I share a link to another site that used fabric medium with good results too. Hope that helps!

    These look wonderful! I love the final product, you did a wonderful job! I painted a couch about 2 years ago and we still use it daily and it still looks wonderful. I'm working on some chairs right now that I found at Goodwill! I love painting furniture
