Painted Upholstery

Here’s an interesting way to give an old ottoman new life, from Tracie at The Full Moxie.  After doing lots of internet research, Tracie decided to makeover this thrifted ottoman with paint.

Are you surprised to learn that she used regular latex paint?  It took a few coats, but Tracie was happy with the result.  She added some fun floral detail with a fabric pen and stencil.  It’s like a completely new piece of furniture, with very little time or money spent on the transformation.

  1. Thats pretty clever! I would have never thought abut that! This is why I love this site! <3

  2. Wow. That’s so cool. I wonder if it is waterproof? It would be fun to have something like that outside on the deck.
