Painted Velvet Chairs
We have had these velvet chairs for a number of years. I hated to get rid of them because they were in such good condition. The dated upholstery was my only issue with them. So, I decided to paint them and give them a new look.
The chairs were clean, solid construction, and had no rips or tears in them.
I used Rustoleum's Automotive spray paint designed for fabrics and vinyl. Each chair got two coats of paint, it took 3 cans to cover each chair.
I had removed the skirts on the bottom of the chairs before painting, then added some decorative nickel nail heads after they were painted.
I love how they look. They will have many more years of use in our home! More tips on the blog.
