Don’t Reupholster that Fabric, Paint!

Mary loves this chair from the family’s rec room in the basement, but after some significant renovating, there was no time or budget left for reupholstering. So instead, she picked up discounted paint, fabric medium, and a water bottle.

Following the instructions on the fabric medium, she taped off the wood trim, sprayed the fabric with water, mixed the latex paint and the medium, and painted the material a soft gray. It took three coats of paint.

That’s a quick and easy fix anyone can reproduce! Thanks, Mary!
