Using a Quality Chalked Paint on Fabric..easier Than You Think!


Easy Rocking chair makeover. Use Shabby Chalked Paint to update outdated fabric for a fresh new look. Strong but flexible!
Sorry this will be Short and Sweet guys.
Sprayed the fabric with a fine mist of water. (keeping the fabric slightly damp will help it stay softer than it would if you painted over it dry, just a mist or it will delay dry time!)
Painted with 1/2 water 1/2 peacock chalk-paint mixture. Only needed two coats...there is no reason to mist for the second coat because the first coat of Shabby Paints has already completely covered the fabric.
Sanded after the first and second coat lightly with a fine grit sandpaper to make it nice and smooth.
I used Shabby Shimmer in Pearl White for the stencil, stripe and as a glaze on the wood. That's it Easy Peasy!!!
Sooo comfortable! Not sure if this will be for Grandma's nursery or moms :)
