Painting Upholstery Instead of Replacing It

At Elizabeth Joan Designs, Erin scored these twin barcaloungers free from a Craigslist ad.  “And they were is great condition,” Erin notes.  “No funky smell. No nasty stains. Only a small amount of dust and hair clung on for its life as I vacuumed them off.”

Despite their excellent condition, the hunter green upholstery was a bit dated.  Erin had seen some tutorials on Pinterest for painting upholstery, and decided these were the perfect chairs to experiment with.  I won’t go into the details of how she painted these, but I will say that Erin discovered these chairs could soak up a lot of paint!  Once the upholstery was painted, she gave the wooden legs a coat of white paint to match the newly gray upholstery.  I think the chairs look unbelievably good!
