When I saw this chair I knew it would be perfect to paint. I loved the style & the round upholstered seat. My intentions where to reupholster the seat but once I looked it over I realized it would be
more work harder than I thought.
(70's fabric, anyone?)
I had a fantastic desk & it needed a chair so I really wanted to finish this one quickly. I knew the fastest way was to paint the fabric. Everyone is so fascinated by painting fabric. It is so easy.
I used American Paint Company's Lincoln's Hat, a true black. American Paint Company Paint is all natural, zero VOC, and eco-friendly. Safe to use in your home!
I added some water to the paint, about 50/50. This paint is so thick! Adding the water helps the paint seep into the fabric so it doesn't feel stiff & crunchy.
The frame of the chair was painted with American Paint Company's Navajo White. A great white without being too white or too creamy. I was too lazy to remove the seat so I just taped off the frame when I painted the seat.
I sealed the seat with 2 coats of Top Coat. The seat feels smooth without being stiff.
It looks perfect with my desk!
Love the frame on the back, reminds me of a hot air balloon!
