How to Paint a Fabric Couch

A shapely old love seat couch in great condition may only need a spray of paint to bring it back to life.

To give a sofa new life, simply spray it with your favorite shade of paint. We used a black latex paint to spray right over the crushed velvet and wood moldings. The results were instant, easy and transformed the sofa in mere minutes. Dry thoroughly overnight and and spray the next day to cover any unpainted spots. We used the Wagner FLEXiO 5000 Paint Sprayer for this project.
