So the wife and I found some great chairs for the living room.  Except for the fabric, that is.  It's PINK!  Well, rose-colored, at least.  Ugh!

So, doing a quick search online, and I found this:
www.fabricspraypain t.com

Has anyone used this?  Any thoughts?

I promise to get pics up soon.  Too tired tonight!

No, too chicken to try it!   Embarrassed  I think once we get the $$ saved up, I'm going to attempt to reupholster it instead.

Interesting idea-- It'd be so cool if it worked.

So far, when I've planned to paint on the upholstery, I've only used unstretched canvas for the fabric, and then I used fabric craft paints. There's a funky bookstore not far from me that upholsters whole lounge chairs that way.

You can see my weird checkerboard-floored Maxfield Parrish chair here:
