Giving New Life to My Chair

Hey, all! If you know me, you know I love crafts and making things. I read online that you could actually PAINT chairs, yes, paint them! You know I had to try it! I found this gorgeous chair online for only $60, but it was, unfortunately, stained beyond repair. I tried cleaning it with the upholstery cleaner, and while it did ‘clean’ it, it was never going to be the original color.

So, a little paint, a little fabric medium, and water, and voila! Like-new chair!

I used the Martha Stewart textile medium, but I’m sure any brand would work. Mix it, water, and paint in a 1:1:1/2 part formula, and just paint it on. I still have to put another layer on, but she looks great on camera!
