WOW!!!  Two “new to you” chairs for twenty bucks.  That’s a bargain and a great DIY project.  Here are a few takeaway tips:

Clean your piece before you begin!  DO NOT skip this step.

Fabric will require 3-5 coats of paint.  Take your time and be patient with the process.

Dampen the fabric and your paintbrush before you begin.

Dilute the paint by about 35-40 percent with water.  This is only for the fabric portion of your project.

Be sure you pick a piece that has clean, unfrayed fabric.  You want to start with a quality piece that will take the paint well.
