How to Paint a Leather Chair

Hey everyone, it’s Tracey from Tracey’s Fancy!

In all honesty…..I did NOT need another chair for my office. BUT…. evidently…. my readers and online family needed a “how to paint on leather” demonstration…..and because of that…..this gorgeous painted leather chair was created….and I’m keeping it!

Check out my tutorial videos below! 

Materials List:


How To:

Step 1:

Firstly, I painted the entire front in Peony.

Step 2:

Secondly, I painted the area near the “crack…aka where the seat meets the back” in a blend of Caviar and Muscadine Wine….which made this beautiful Black Cherry color. I will use this color on future projects without a doubt!

Step 3:

Next, I painted the middle section of both the back and the seat in Plum Crazy.

Step 4:

Using a spray bottle and my brush I blended the line between the custom Black Cherry and the Plum Crazy to soften the transition of color…..making sure to neatly wrap the color all the way to the nail head area.

Step 5:

I then added a fresh line of Peony to the most forward area of the seat cushion and the uppermost area of the back cushion….and again….using water and my brush I blended the transition line of the Peony to Plum Crazy….again….making sure to neatly wrap the color all the way around to the nail-head area.  

Step 6:

Next,  I painted the leather on the arms in a Plum Crazy and Peony blend.
