Spray Painted Parsons Chair

McCall Manor
by McCall Manor
Hey Y'all! This was my first attempt at painting fabric chairs. I know it sounds weird, but I'm not the only person to try this out. Are they as comfy as fabric chairs, no. Will they work for dining room chairs that don't get a lot of use, YES!
These chairs started out as black and white toile. I truly thought I would NEVER get tired of them. And to be fair, I have had them for over a decade. That is pretty good if you ask me.
My first step was to set up my spray tent from HomeRight. If you don't have one of these and you paint a lot of furniture, I recommend RUNNING to the hardware store and getting one. Or better yet, just order online. Then there is no running involved.
I could easily set up 3 chairs at a time in this tent.
While you are at it, get a Finish Max sprayer. This bad boy is a worker. I have used it several times now and it has a super easy clean up process and holds about a quart of paint. It's light weight as well!
I covered the underneath with a plastic garbage bag because I wanted a contrast to my creamy white fabric.
The paint color that I used was Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. It's a cream, but not yellowy.
For the back I made a stencil with my Silhouette machine and painted on the M with ASCP graphite.
