How to Update Mid-Century Modern with No Pain Gel Stain

Don’t you just love mid-century modern design? My friend, Valrey, a.k.a. the Picker Chic, is my go to person when I’m on the hunt for furniture. I was so excited to get two of these mid-century chairs!

The original vinyl seats were in great condition. And I loved the color!

There were are few scratches on the wood and the caning on the back was faded. I revived the wood and the caning with No Pain Gel Stain in Espresso.

    Love your products!

    I have a beautiful bench that has vinyl as the cushion. Nothing is wrong with it except I’d like to change the color. Even a stain would be nice as a thin sheen. Is there anything I can put on this to prep and use?

    Thank you!

      Hi Kim!
      Thank you! We are so glad! 😊
      From what we can tell, we would recommend priming with 2 coats of Slick Stick and using our Chalk Mineral Paint. You could seal it with Gator Hide to protect it, perhaps lightly sanding between coats to keep the cushion supple.
      Hope this helps!
