Do you have throw pillows that you’ve grown tired of? Learn how to update those pillows with paint.
Mr. SP had this futon when we were married and it now has three covers on it. The last cover was plaid from LLBean and I purchased bolster pillows to match. I wanted to update the pillows without having to sew a new cover, so I painted them.
- Throw Pillows
- Paint - I used chalk paint but regular paint is fine to use.
- Fabric Medium
- Paint Brush
- Sanding Sponge
- Assemble supplies.
- Mix paint and fabric medium in a 2:1 ratio.
- Spray the fabric with water to moisten it. It doesn't need to be extremely wet.
- Soften the paint by sanding the fabric with a sanding sponge. Sanding will make the fabric feel like leather.
