I didn't like the old pattern on my 1980's wing back chair so I painted the upholstery to give it a new look. See what it looked like before and the technique I used by reading my post.

    @Rustic Crafts & Chic Decor - Renee Would love to know how this has held up? I am going to paint a pair of chairs I have and am asking everyone I can find who has done this about the durability!

    I also painted a couple of rose colored wingbacks black They are in our family room. Looks great but the material is a little rough. Did you have that problem at all? Do you have any suggestions on softening the cushions?
