How To Paint Upholstery and Keep it Feeling Soft

Hello friends, I have got a project for you today. Have you tried to paint upholstery before, and it turned out super crunchy? I am here to tell you there is a better way to paint your upholstery and keep it soft.  So soft that the painted upholstery piece will become your new favorite chair to sit in.

I shared a step-by-step tutorial with all the necessary supplies, tips to make your painted upholstery project extra unique, and secrets you won’t find anywhere else. You can grab all the supplies I used here on my supplies page!

If you want to see a tutorial video of this project, I am sharing this step-by-step video on how to dye your fabric with DIY Paint and Keep It Soft! Starting August 30th, 2023, I will be a featured artist at the new MadeTV streaming network? Between now and August 29th, you can get a lifetime membership and a bonus lifetime membership to their sister network, “Bloom TV”, everything floral and flower-related. Check out MadeTV Network, HERE.

As a contributor to The Turquoise Iris Journal, I am also honored to blog for them!  You can find my blog post on How to Paint Upholstery and Keep it Soft at this link, along with tons of other fun, beautiful, and inspiring articles.  I hope you will take a look and let me know what you think and if you will try this project yourself.


Thank you for stopping by; I hope you will subscribe to my newsletter, so you don’t miss a post and all the latest on my junk upcycled from Redoux.  Happy Junking!

    I did not know that you could decoupage fabric to fabric! So glad I read your article.

      Thank you so much Carla! I have decoupaged fabric several times on painted furniture, I find it easier to work with than paper!
