Chair Makeover With Vinyl Spray Paint

Yes, there is such thing as spray paint for vinyl. Rust-Oleum makes it and it is actually called Fabric and Vinyl Paint although I’ve tried it on fabric and it was a FAIL! I would have to do more testing to see if it also works on fabric. But this post is about using it on a vinyl chair so let me walk you though what I did.
My project piece was this little 50's chair which was purchased for $5 at a thrift store a while back. I like the chair but not the color. As I really didn't want to reupholster it, I decided it was the perfect piece to try vinyl spray paint as an alternative to reupholstering.
To prepare the surface for paint, clean everything with Krud Kutter or your cleaner of choice.
The chair frame was sanded lightly then sprayed with oil rubbed bronze.
After the cushions were clean and dry they were sprayed with Rust-Oleum Fabric and Vinyl spray paint in flat black.

    Awesome chair! I didn't know rustoleum makes that product. Please report back to let us know how it holds up. Could be a game changer.

    Great chair! Nice job! Personally, for fabric and vinyl, I use spray paint from the auto parts store. Have had no problems with them
