My Painted Sofa!

Well, it took me longer than I wanted to, but I finished my painted sofa project.  I am very happy with the results.  I took an old faded upholstered sofa and painted it and now it looks like a brand new sofa.  It's pet smell proof and will wipe clean easily.  I can't stop staring at it, I just am amazed how different it looks.

 I am really excited and proud of how the sofa turned out!  The photo doesn't give the color its true depth, it is a very soothing sage green!

You can see close up the texture of the fabric is still there under the paint!

awesome! I love old things made new again. Did you use a fabric paint and brush it on?

No,I used semi gloss latex interior paint and sanded between coats. It feels like stiff leather right now but the more we sit on it the softer it's getting. I did a chair like this too and it's almost like a faux suede, it was a velour type fabric on the chair. It turned out better than I had even hoped!

WOW! Your sofa looks great in gray, and it beautifully blends with the other furniture and accessories in the room. Did you keep its color up to now? Two thumbs up for a great job. :)
