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.
Give an old love seat, sofa or couch new life by painting the fabric and the wood. Spraying the furniture piece with your favorite color will bring it back.
Paint the Fabric with a Paint Sprayer
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.
We used the FLEXiO 5000 paint sprayer for this project, which allowed for complete, uniform coverage on the fabric.
Allow to Dry
Dry thoroughly overnight and and spray the next day to cover any unpainted spots.
Decorate and Enjoy
Use your recast sofa in an entry way, living room or hallway and dress it up with seasonal pillows and throws to give it interest and character.
