I have been wrecking my brain if I can paint an upholstered chair. If the paint would take and so forth. Well, a couple of months ago I saw the cutest wingback in white upholstery and when I got closer I realized that it was painted. What a shock. I was elated by my discovery. My idea was not bad afterall.
Here we go I went ahead and painted 2 chairs and I was so delighted at their outcome that I am going to share with you how to do it.
Latex paint (wall paint)
Brush or/and roller
medium grit sand paper
Make sure the chair is nice and clean. Sand lightly all the wooden parts on the chair. Remove the cushion. Then apply the paint. It may take 2 coats. Once the paint has dried sand the whole chair by hand not with an electric sander. Make sure you dust the chair really well. And Voila! Here is your new chair!
