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.

  2. Really great blog i have ever seen. While on the other side of coin, if you are just doing a small job then what’s the use of buying a commercial sprayer? After deciding the type and size of paint sprayer you required, you must consider its quality.
