Then, I spent the Art Day out on the farm with those fiber artists...they are SUCH BIG FANS of painting on fabric...
And, I have a board on Pinterest called "Funky Furniture"....there are soo many great examples of painted furniture. Hummm...I wonder if that could work...
|I had a ten year old gallon of blue wall paint...and I figured if it didn't work out, I could STILL staple new fabric over the failed painted fabric experiment...|
|Then, too, it seemed like Lilly would enjoy helping with this part of project...|
|I love it any time Tom Sawyer plays a role in my day...!!|
|The paint dried quickly. And you can see that two coats were necessary...|
|The second coat went on really quickly...|
|Too bad the back of the sofa will be up against the wall. I'd LOVE to paint a big design here....HEY!! it WILL be up against the wall!! All the more reason to paint some huge wild design --|
|It was a little tricky painting in between the caning on the sides of the sofa...|
