The Painted Couch: Art or Trash?

Seems like everywhere you look something new is being used as a canvas. So it's no surprise that the next big thing to hit the streets comes straight from your living room — the Painted Sofa...

Painting a couch can be a work of art, but also something quite practical. Companies like Fabric Spray Paint offer permanent, non-toxic spray paints for your furniture.

Other people have had success using basic latex wall paint and mixing in Textile Medium, which helps the paint adhere to fabric.

Whether you choose to paint your couch for fun or function, let us know how it goes and send in your examples to newyork(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com.
