1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / question about fabric for covering chair on: July 05, 2011 12:11:02 PM
I've recently bought a chair at a car boot sale to paint and recover, I want to do a gothic themed chair for our house, but I'm not sure what fabric is most suitable to use, I've seen some gorgeous alexander kaufman cotton fabric but i'm not sure if this will be suitable for covering a chair or if I need proper upholstery fabric. It is not going to be a heavily used chair.

Has anybody got any advice for me?

I have never painted or recovered a chair before, have read that I just need to sand it, two coats of primer, then the top coating (not sure what paint I need to get as the top one, I just need plain black, however I intend to get more chairs to paint in brighter colours in the future, so what paint do I use then?)

I'm a total newbie to this kind of craft so be gentle!
