a painted chair

"Big deal...a painted chair."
But what about a painted upholstered chair?
"You can't paint an upholstered chair," said my husband, my client, and her husband.   "Can you?"

Awhile back, I pinned this...



And this...


(Okay, so the white sofa is vinyl, but I was still itching to try it.)

And my client had this...


which she wanted to match this...


So I did this...

{Linking up to a few fabulous parties:}

I love it! I hope you'll share how you went about it. The stencil tops it off!

If you just saw the after photo you'd think it was a new chair. Great job. And how wonderful that your clients have such trust and faith in your version to say "do what I don't think can be done!". Hope you'll share the how to's :)
