Spilling paint isn't always a bad thing, seriously. I picked up this charming frenchee chair at the Habitat store. It had some ugly mauve colored fabric upholstery and I knew it had to go. However, removing the back cushion was going to be a job.
So, I started painting the frame with the upholstery intact.....
Then I accidentally spilled some of the paint on the fabric and well.....it looked pretty darn good. So I did what any good junker artist whose worth her weight in gold would do....I painted it!!!!
The paint is Behr's "blush pink."
It's not sticky or tacky. It's actually very smooth and looks like
a really good quality oil cloth. I did add a coat of clear polyurethane to protect it and add durability.
Who knew a big spill could turn out so well....
Oh, by the way....I also made this cute french image pillow.
I also found this really cute retro ottoman in pink!!! Now how lucky is that......Notice how everything is "cute."
So, there you have it. No use crying over spilt paint. I've heard of fabric paint but never tried it and this seemed to work really well.
I might even try it again on another project.
