    You said not to wax – will they crack? I have seen painted upholstery and am not of fan – what is the real life look and feel of this? Do you think it will hold up to feet, kids, use? I love all your creations and look forward to each and every new post – You are one of the truly inventive ones out there and I love how you get your stuff!!

      I used Annie Sloan chalk paint on a similar vinyl ottoman. I applied two coats and then waxed it. Turned out stunning. I don’t know why wax is not recommended but my method didn’t create any adverse effects.

      Hi Trisha, I would most definitely not wax a piece of furniture. Your body heat can warm up the wax and potentially have the wax rub off on you! CeCe Caldwell’s paints contain no acrylic or Latex, just chalk and two kinds of clay. This makes it bond to whatever surface you are painting. I have seen other things painted that hold up really well. I think it will hold up to plenty of use and abuse!

    Oh. My. Gosh. You are three kinds of brilliant! I love this idea. And silly me has been trolling Craigslist for just the right color! When will I ever learn? A thousand thank yous for sharing at Fridays Unfolded, my clever friend!

      That is so sweet Allison! Thank you! The real story is, I can never leave anything well enough alone! Must paint!

    What a great idea, it would be really good to see them in a few months, just to see how they are standing up to life! But then with all the layers of seal you gave them I expect they will be fine. It seems the trick is to pick the right paint!
    Anyway, they look great and all that hidden storage – bonus! (and your post title is one of my all time favourites!)

    • GTC says:

      Thank you so much Julie! Alison from Refunk my Junk did this first on a Pouf and they hold up great. The paint doesn’t have any acrylic or latex in it, so it really just bonds with whatever surface you are painting and doesn’t have the ability to crack.

  8. Your poufs poofs are cute!! 😉 Love the color!!

      Thanks so much Nancy!! If they don’t sell, they are coming home again. Somewhere in my house could use a Pouf or two!

  9. Milla says:

    Brilliant Idea! And it’s my favorite color too! How soft is it? And any updates on how it will hold up in a few months will be great.

  10. I absolutely love this! Gorgeous! Would have never thought of paint! Thanks so much for linking up at Thursday STYLE! Have a great week 🙂

    I would never have thought the paint would go on that nicely!! I’m asking bloggers to share their leather projects at the Create With Me monthly party at Love Create Celebrate. I hope you’ll come by and share!
