Video Tutorial: Painting Fabric with Chalk Paint

Video Tutorial Painting Fabric with Chalk Paint

It’s Friday, and time for another DIY video tutorial!  Today I’m going to show you how to paint fabric using chalk paint.


This is the bench before.  My goal was to modernize and simplify.  I spray painted the base with gold paint and used Annie Sloan Pure White on the fabric.


And here’s the after.  Much more updated and simple – don’t you think?

  1. I am wondering if this technique is for everyday wear and tare or is it just for looks? I have a couch that is used everyday and was thinking about painting it. Is it comfortable to sit on? What would you advise?
    Thank You, Beverly

    • I wouldn’t suggest this technique for a couch for a couple reasons. First, a couch would go through a TON of paint. At that point, it may be just as cost effective to consider reupholstering. Also, this technique makes the fabric feel vinyl. It wouldn’t make for a good, comfy couch-watching tv. I hope this helps!
