Do you have a chair in great shape, but you hate the upholstery? Or, have you passed by perfectly good chairs at a yard sale or thrift store because you didn't like the upholstery?
It's an easy fix! Paint it!!!
I bought this chair at a local thrift store for $7.50. The fabric was dated, but in great shape.
I used a spray bottle filled with water to mist the fabric. This will help it to accept the paint.
I chose the color, Gravel Road, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. It's a beautiful dark gray!
It took 3 coats to cover the pattern. I used a 400 grit sandpaper and sanded between each coat. Sanding is the key to getting a soft, smooth finish. I finished the chair off with Dixie Belle's Best Dang Clear Wax.
I also painted the wood with Gravel Road and I love the monochromatic look.
As with so many things, I have created a dilemma! Keep or sell? I think I may have to keep it!
