Antique Chair Update
My taste is very eclectic. There are several reasons why I can appreciate so many different styles. I inherited this antique corner chair. When I first got it, my mind went racing with different colors and upholsteries. BUT after some research, I found out that this chair may actually be worth something. I didn’t want to jeopardize its integrity by permanently altering it…just in case. I liked the chair, but I wanted to update it a little. So when I came across Simply Spray fabric paint. I knew what to do for this antique chair update.
I used lettered stencils and numbered stickers for my design. (By the way, the year I chose was COMPLETELY random). After ironing my fabric, I taped the lettered stencils onto the fabric with craft tape. For the numbers, I used the outline of each sticker versus the actual number for stenciling purposes. THIS WAS THE BEST IDEA EVER! It made spray painting SO easy.
Next, I taped off the rest of the fabric that I did not want spray painted.
In a well-ventilated area I followed the directions on the Simply Spray paint can, and sprayed one coat of paint.
Next, because I was using stencils, I dabbed the top with a paper towel.
When my paint was dry, I used a staple gun to attach my newly painted fabric onto the seat. I kept the original upholstery so I did not ruin the chair. I loved how it turned out. Here are some after pictures.
