This is a wonderful video tutorial that will walk you through the entire process! Once you have watched the video, you can check out my FAB redo below…
***Extra video just added***
I found this sweet little vintage tulip chair on Craigslist for $40. I loved the shape and the fabric was still in good condition, with no rips or tears, but the color was quite faded. I knew this would be the perfect candidate for a FAB makeover!
I used Thunderous (by Heirloom Traditions) on the inside back, arms, & chair cushion and Weathered Wood (by DIY Paint) on the outside of the chair. I then mixed Letterpress Gray & Gravel Road together for the wood trim, which are also made by DIY Paint.I only used one coat of paint on all of the fabric and was able to use my Sample Sized paint jars. I only used about 6oz out of the 8oz for each color and spent roughly $60 (retail) for all of the paint products, including the FAB, for the entire chair. That’s a huge saving over having it reupholstered!I left the some of the original fabric so that everyone could see & feel the difference. I am placing the chair in my suite at the Frisco Mercantile for display purposes and I hope you get a chance to check it out for yourself.You can pick up FAB in either of my shops or order it online here: FAB Additionally, you can check for a local retailer in your area through the same link.
