How do I paint a cream colored cloth chair?

I have a off-white chair and ottoman in my bedroom that I want to paint tan and cover up some stains. The fabrics is porous, not duck-cloth or canvas. What kind of paint do I use, and how do I go about painting it?


Thank you for your guidance and suggestions.

    I have seen a chair that looks just like this on a web site about painting furniture. Many people just use acrylic paint. Some say chalk paint is good. I'd do more research on line. May I also suggest before you paint, put more batting in your back cushion. Open a seam, stuff in as much as you can to get the wrinkles out, and then hand stitch tightly to close it up. Good luck.

      Thank you so much for your response Pam! I will definitely stuff the back cushion!

    I agree with adding some stuffing to the back of the chair. Fabric medium added to latex paint will produce a good painted project that is not stiff.
