DIY Painted Upholstered Chair

DIY projects 03.16.15
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.

    I have a chair that I have been wanting to paint but I've been too big of a chicken...thanks to you, I think I'll take the leap!

    That's great Mary Beth! When I did mine I figured what do I have to lose? I definitely didn't like the fabric that was on it so I knew I could always slip cover it or get it reupholstered. It doesn't cost much to experiment with paint :)

    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?
