Sweet Redemption

I told you I could paint fabric!!!

Let me back track...

The Epic Fail:

 


This couch was a disastrous paint project which I have deemed my Epic Fail. You can read more about it, but I have since wanted to redeem myself from the result of the sofa!

Meet the vintage barrel chair.




The perfect candidate for painting the fabric! Just the back, though. The seat got a different treatment.


The framework is painted in Greek Blue, the upholstered back is both painted in Old White and waxed.


The seat cushion is covered with an extra wide-weave burlap coffee sack from Kenya. The original greenish/blue fabric peeks through the burlap and looks really cool!



The wax on the fabric softens the paint and makes it really comfortable. 



Before and after, side by side. What a difference!


 Have I been redeemed?
