Reupholster a bench without sewing a stitch. Brett Bara shares how she did just that with a vintage piece of furniture and a fresh coat of paint on her blog Manhattan Craft Room! To get the look and paint your own fabric chair or bench, you can either use fabric paint or add a fabric medium to regular acrylic paint. This is a great option to give you a flexible rather than stiff painted fabric.
