How to Paint Fabric – FEATURE

Hi everyone today’s post has been submitted by the very talented Medina from Grillo Designs.  She shares her post on how to paint a fabric sofa.

I have never attempted to paint fabric myself but after reading Medina’s post I quite like the idea and may try some time in future as I think the makeover is pretty amazing!


This is the before picture of the sofa chair before Medina did some magic on it.


She used some water to spray the fabric and then painted it using emulsion paint, let it dry and applied a second coat and then third coat.  You must be patient when doing this and let the layers dry in between.


To achieve the look, she then used some painters tape and painted the chair in contrasting colour.


She then finished it off by applying some clear wax and let it cure.

Isn’t it fantastic?



Pleas read the full tutorial and more details on the Grillo Designs blog to attempt this project.
