I think that’s the second time I’ve used a Rolling Stone song for an interior design pun. Ol’ Mr. Jagger is probably rolling in his grave right about now.
What? Still alive?
I kid you, Mick. I kid.
But seriously. Let’s talk about painted furniture. And I really mean painted furniture.
I first researched this option this past summer when I bought these fellas and was trying to think of a time and cost saving alternative to re-upholstery.
And then last week I spotted this before and after gem on Design Sponge.
Stella of Mon Petit Studio commandeered this fabulous sofa for $25 and after reading about the fabric painting situation online, she gave it a whirl.
(First she taped off the woodwork.)
Using a combination of black flat latex paint and Delta Ceramcoat Textile Medium (an additive keeps acrylic/latex paint flexible enough to use to paint a couch, without all of it just flaking off) she got to work with a paintbrush!
And voila! Is that incredible or is that incredible?
Apparently, it feels pretty damn good too.
Stella, girl. You got style. I’m going to copycat you. And you’re going to like it. Or your going to hate it. Or you’ll feel ambivalent about it.

Over and out.
