DIYidea: Paint your ugly upholstery

May 13, 2009 § Leave a comment

So, I got these chairs on Craigslist for free. And they’re FINE. But I want them to be more than fine, in fact, I want them to be really cute… and I recently read about painting your upholstered furniture. Painting? Upholstery? What? Yes, it’s true, you can – because guess what comes in fabric paint? Latex paint. And guess what latex paint is? The stuff you get at Home Depot in cans. The trick is to add a thinner called GAC-900 to keep the fabric pliable. AT did a post on this, and they said that they are skeptical. As am I. 

But these chairs were free. So I think I’m going to do it. Or maybe I’ll start with one. 

Here are the instructions from DIYnetwork. They did a lot of artistry on theirs, and I have no plans to do such a thing.
