I have seen vintage couches be refurbished many times and the last few I saw had the fabric painted. I thought why can’t I do that?
Painting the fabric of the couch is simple and it saves a lot of time when refurbishing a couch or love seat because you don’t have to reupholster it. Plus a bonus usually you have extra paint on hand so it doesn’t cost very much!
I am going to walk you through step by step of how I refurbished my vintage couch.
I have this vintage couch for a while now but wasn’t sure I was ready to tackle the project. I knew it was going to be difficult and tedious to redo the whole couch. I wasn’t even going to try it until I received the Worx MakerX tool. Once I had the tools I knew I could tackle the project much easier. The multi-tool allowed me to really sand down all the small areas and tight areas of the wood on the couch. Below is the process that I completed making over the couch with paint!
