The chairs above were painted to the lovely white color you see.
This clever woman painted them using textile medium and acrylic paint. The medium allows the fabric to take the paint without getting stiff. It also makes it washable and prevents running and bleeding. Use a 2:1 paint to textile medium mixture. And should you stain it again, just repaint. Easy. Love it!
