Thrift store chairs given new life with Heirloom Traditions Fabric Primer and Sealer with FAB. Painted with Heirloom Traditions Irish Cream (white) and Basque (green) colors.
These were my chairs before. Old and tired and faded fabric. I cleaned the chairs w/vinegar and water. Sanded the fabric with 3M Flexible Sand Paper. Sprayed the chairs with a water bottle and used a damp Cling On Paint Brush to apply the FAB. After the FAB dried, I sanded again. Then I painted the chairs in Irish Cream. Applied 2 coats of paint, sanding in between coats. Then used FROG TAPE to tape off my stripes and painted the stripes with Basque all the while using a damp brush. Sealed the chairs with FAB and now they are fade and water resistant.
