Painting a fabric chair
Painting a fabric chair can be a bit daunting if you have never attempted it. I have to admit, the chair looked pretty awful and I was not in much of a hurry to fix it.
Years ago, back when I first was married, my mother gave me this chair. I left it sit in the sun, bad move. When she passed away, I couldn't get myself to throw the chair out. It really didn't have much value anymore due to my neglect in allowing it to sit in the sunshine.
One day while on PINTEREST, I noticed that someone was picturing a wingback fabric chair painted. WHAT? I had never heard of painting fabric. I know, where have I been. I can't recall what they used, but this is what I used.

There were a few problematic areas with my chair, which caused a less than perfect finished product; however, it is so much improved over where I started, I am happy with the result.
|Right or wrong, I actually hot glued that cording back into place. I was careful to only have glue on the backside of the cording so that the paint held. This is worth mentioning because nothing sticks well to hot glue.|
After another day working at my chair, I ended up with this final product. Note that I do not have the original cushion. This is because the sun obliterated it.
