In our home if something stands still too long it's bound to get painted, which is probably why we have a pretty active family. The latest piece to acquire a fresh coat of paint is the ottoman my husband gave me for Christmas. It was, like most furniture in our home, "recycled" and in need of a little tender loving refinishing. After contemplating recovering the piece, I thought "Hmmmm.....I wonder if I can just paint over the fabric?"
Repainting the ottoman was super easy and, since I already had all the materials on hand, very inexpensive. I love the lively color and joyful feeling the ottoman now adds to the room.
Ingredients for fabric paintingKilz Latex Primer-Sealer, Acrylic paint, brushes, and water to wash out your brushes. I'm not sure what I'll seal the ottoman with but am assuming, with our sandy feet and little animal paws, coating it with a sealant will be a pretty important last step.
Now off to see what else could use a fresh coat of paint....
