How to Spray Paint an Upholstered Chair

How to spray paint upholstery:

Step 1: Get inspired by the very crafty Megan at OmahaHa! and rip off the hideous, ill-fitting cover on the milk-stained but otherwise good chair in your living room.

Step 2: Order four cans of saddle brown paint and hope for a pretty fall day.

Step 3: Make a half-hearted attempt to clean the chair because it seems like you should. Drag your chair outside in the front yard and excitedly start painting. Forget to take a before picture of your milk-stained chair.

Step 4: Sit on your porch and take an artsy photo of your chair as it dries from coat one.

Step 5: Make sure you remember to paint the cushions as you start coat two.
Step 6: Leave the chair on the front porch to dry.
Step 7: Get home from work and activities after dark for a week so you can't finish final touch-ups.
Step 8: Find the last nearly empty spray bottle lying in your yard and use it to get a few places you missed.
Step 9: Bring your chair inside and take an after picture.
Step 10: Enjoy a new chair for a fraction of the price.
