7 Easy Furniture Facelifts
Bold flowers turn solid-color upholstered furniture (or slipcovers) into conversation starters, especially when you're the artist. We used stencils and acrylic paint mixed with textile medium to update our bergere chair.
For best results: Decide flower placement first, balance sizes and colors, and practice on scrap fabric. Attach stencils, one at a time, with stencil spray adhesive. Paint from the outside of the stencil in with a small foam roller to achieve a thin layer. Use a stencil brush for details. Paint the frame a coordinating color.
