Several years ago, I painted my sofa and two other chairs in my house. After painting many floorcloths (painted canvas rugs), I thought, why not on furniture? I used the same process and it worked beautifully! Warning-if you are painting a bumpy or slubbed texture fabric you MUST use dye, not paint. The paint turns it into rough concrete. It will tear your skin! However, smooth fabrics turn out like old leather. You have to sand the surface of the final coat of paint to produce a super smooth finish. Very important step! Follow with clear poly. Water based paints are the best due to quick drying times and breathability.
