Hi friends. Have you ever painted fabric? I have not, but have been reading up on painting upholstery and stalking other bloggers’ pages to see their results and I have to say that I am amazed at their transformations.
This month I am joining in on the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest hosted by General Finishes Paint Company. Our theme is “A Fresh Start”. When Mom and Dad gifted this piece to me I thought it would be the perfect candidate…Grandma’s Bergere Chair!
First, a little about the contest! The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest is a monthly contest sponsored by fabulous brands where bloggers can enter to win fabulous prizes. Each month is a different theme, which makes it fun and unique.
To learn more about contest details or to enter future contests you can contact our hosts at email@example.com.
Also you can check out these current fabulous makeovers by our Hosts:

As mentioned above, our contest this month is sponsored by General Finishes. Please note that some or all of the hosts of The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest receive monetary and/or product compensation from the sponsoring brand, General Finishes, in order to complete their themed projects. General Finishes will also provide the prize package for the contest winner.
General Finishes was gracious to send me a can of their Chalk Style Paint in a beautiful French Vanilla color. I have worked with chalk style paint before and love the texture of the paint. It is water based which make cleanup a breeze! They also sell a variety of beautiful colors in Water Based Paints, Chalk Style, Milk Based, Pearl Effects and Glazes. I will definitely head over to General Finishes again to try some more painting techniques in the future.

How beautiful! Nice job – thanks for posting the details. I may give it a try after seeing your success.
This chair turned out fabulous! I love the color and it does look soft. Wow, you make me want to go out and buy and old chair to paint. LOL
What a fabulous looking chair-well done!
Ilove how you transformed that chair! Beautiful.
You did a great job! I've chalk painted a few upholstered pieces now and I've learned more with each piece. You did amazing on your first piece! Going to try spraying the brush next time – great tip.
beautiful job Tami! I think your "new" chair looks fabulous, and happy you didn't pain the wood, especially since it was your grandmother's chair.
ps I bought a wing chair yesterday, just so I could paint it. 🙂
I've seen some painted furniture in a shop full of artistic items! It looked as if they held up very well and since then I have wanted to try it. I love the tip about spraying the brush. Your chair turned out FABULOUS!
What a Beautiful Chair. Great Job! I do have a question though, Can after you paint it apply a stencil? I have a wing back chair and would like to paint it but would like to add some intrest to it. I was wondering if after you applied the coats of paint if a lighter shade could be added in the way of a stencil to add some dimension?
If anyone has any ideas or would know about this please email me… Thanks and again What a Beautiful chair an such a Great Job…
