Painting Fabric - Moonflower Chair

Yes, you can paint the fabric with Plain Jane Paint too!

Think about it as dying the fabric rather than painting over the top of it. The trick is to water the paint down and dampen the fabric first so that the beautiful rich pigments sink in and basically dye the fabric.

Sand in between coats to create a smooth leathery finish.

Seal with plain Jane Furniture Wax and the paint finish will remain pliable and durable.

I think this is one of the most fun ways to use chalk paint and opens up a whole new world of possibilities. I have painted handbags and shoes as well as furniture!

The Moonflower Chair project is made really special by adding a beautiful aged Silver finish to the frame. In this video I'll show you how to create an authentic tarnished Silver finish. It's so pretty!
