Vinyl, faux leather/pleather or even leather can be updated fairly simply without a bunch of expensive specialty products. This little stool/ottoman needed an update. It turned out so cute.
I used General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in black pepper. Using two good coats of paint and sanding in between with 400 wet/dry sand paper.
The stencil on top is Modern Master's gold and the entire stool is sealed with several coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in satin. I sanded between each coat and then finished the last coat with a hand polished coat of Satin Wax.
I have a three year old who was more than happy to test out the durability of the finish. He jumped, bounced and pushed this little ottoman all over for a few days. It's perfect, no cracks, no peeling, no chipping and still going strong.
