Painting fabric

I have seen some diy posts on painting fabric so decided to try it on my husbands nasty desk chair.  It was really either needing to be replaced or reupholstered.  But since he is not in his office very much anymore I decided to try paint!

I used a product called Farmhouse Paints.  The primary color is Indigo and I did the inside back in Parisian Blue, almost the same color as the walls.

I watered it down a bit, put on one coat and let it dry.  I brushed it to soften the fabric a bit and then repeated the process.  It was painted yesterday and my husband used it today!

I am quite pleased with the results, and it cost me around $10 and saved the cost of a new chair!
