Hi everyone! It’s Meleah from Mustard Tree Market. Let’s learn how to paint fabric using Chalk Mineral Paint! This vintage chair spoke to me with her feminine curves and tufted upholstery. I knew she would be perfect for this whimsical furniture makeover!
- White Lightning Cleaner
- The Gulf
- Holy Guacamole
- Soft Pink
- Honky Tonk Red
- Pine Cone
- Gilding Wax in Bronze
- WoodUbend Bow
- WoodUbend Set of Scrolls
- Easy Peasy Spray Wax
- Clear Coat Flat
First, clean the wood with White Lightning. Then, rinse with water. I sprayed disinfectant on fabric and used vinegar and water spray to lightly mist and remove any dust in the button holes! I grabbed my synthetic round brush and a mister bottle to begin painting the fabric.
Next, spray the upholstery until damp. Then, spray your paint brush. I used the Chalk Mineral Paint color The Gulf. I painted two coats like this, before I began painting the wood in Holy Guacamole, again with two coats!
After that, I decided to paint the back of the upholstery in Soft Pink, for the background of my polka dot design!
Now for some fun and whimsical polka dots! I applied these by hand using a round synthetic brush tied off at the end to create a stencil brush. Dip, stamp, dip, stamp, I go… making imperfect dots using the brilliant cherry red color, Honky Tonk Red!
