That's going to depend on what the outcome is to be... There are products on the market to paint upholstery (and great YouTube videos, as well!) Here is a link to a spray paint for fabric: https://www.amazon.com/Simply-Spray-Upholstery-Fabric-Paint/dp/B005ZU40KG I hope this helps!
What kind of chair?
Hi Christie, this is Peggy. Have you thought of painting them? Good luck with your project.

Do not spend too much on this project. Look at chairs at local thrift stores in your area. Many are $25.00 or less.
