If you are anything like me, I have so many pieces that need to be recovered. The upholstery fabric is out of date, dingy, and could use an update.
Two years ago, I painted the fabric on an antique bench and it turned out amazing!
And because that bench turned out so well, I painted the fabric on a vintage chair too that I found on Facebook Marketplace for a steal.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again if you are considering recovering or deconstructing a piece anyway, why not try to paint fabric first?
It’s no loss if it doesn’t work out, because you were planning to recover it anyway.
And painting fabric is such an inexpensive way to update a piece.
The final result is a dramatic change.
