Painting fabric in 7 easy steps!

How to Paint fabric using Chalk-Acrylic Paint, no fabric medium required. 

I’ve done several posts on painting fabric and every time I do it,  I love it even more. This beautiful rocker looked great as is, but the fabric didn’t match anything in my home.

This Look: Painted the base with Americano and the fabric with Great Greige.  I used Matte VAX to seal it. It might even get a stencil someday 🙂
