Painting Fabric

Chalk paint isn’t just for furniture and cabinets! Painting fabric is one of our favorite ways to use chalk paint—curtains, pillow covers, upholstered chairs, seat covers, and more! Check out some of our favorite examples…

 

French Settee Makeover

The bones of this piece were amazing, but the silk fabric was stained and sun-damaged. Read how we updated it all below:

Chalk-Painted Cedar Chest (Fabric Included!)

This cedar chest was originally refinished the old-fashioned way—by sanding and stripping the finish as well as recovering the fabric seat. Watch the videos below to see how the second time around was so much more awesome and fun!

 
 

Updated Platform Rocker

The cost to replace the fabric on this rocker was prohibitive, and not necessary since it was still in great condition—just dated. So, we chalk painted and waxed it for a new generation of babies to be rocked!

We shared all the details for chalk-painting this upholstered chair below.

 

Stenciled Curtains and Pillow Covers

We did more than just chalk paint curtains, we coordinated an entire room with chalk paint. Read how we did it below.
