Reupholstering miniature furniture is sooooo hard. Who’s got time for that?
A few months ago, I was staring at two light green armchairs in my paneled library roombox. “Nooooooo”, I kept thinking, “that light green color totally works”. And “silk is the new leather.”
Eventually I bowed to the inevitable: only dark green leather armchairs would work. There’s a reason things become cliche.
Because they look GOOD! Because I took the lazy way out and I painted them with fabric paint.
- Use “Slick” fabric paint mixed with regular fabric paint. You want it to have a little sheen, a little slickness.
- Once the paint has thoroughly dried, rub clear furniture wax all over it and then buff with a soft cloth to get the leather look.
Yay, soooooo easy!
