With a damp cloth clean the ottoman before you paint it.
Transform Your Old Fabric Ottoman By Painting It.
I have this old ottoman for the 90's and I can't let it go. The fabric is very bright and doesn't match anything my home now. So I decided to paint it white.
White acrylic paint
Step 1: Clean the ottoman
Step 2: Painting the first coat
With a spray bottle filled with water, spray the water onto the ottoman to make it damp. This will make the paint absorb easier. With a clean brush paint the ottoman until its completely covered. Make sure you get into all the crevices.
Step 3: Sand the first coat
With a sand sponge sand the first coat until it feels soft. It has a feel of soft leather. Clean the dust before you paint the second coat.
Step 4: Paint the second coat
After the first coat has dried, apply a second coat and then sand. Clean the ottoman before you paint. It get so much easier to paint after the second coat. Apply the last coat and sand it.
Step 5: Cleaning the painted ottoman
I will be putting the ottoman in the screened in porch area. So it will be easy to clean. Using a damp cloth daily which will keep the ottoman clean. You can use a simple solution of water and Murphy's oil to keep it conditioned.
