A few months back I busted out some fabric spray paint and painted a pretty chevron on my carpet. Although the looks are alright, there's a new trend sweeping around the internet that will most likely yield better results. See that sofa up there? It's about to get painted — with house paint.

Over at Fabric Bliss a vintage sofa was purchased for the small price of $45. It had great bones but those flowers just had to go.

Re-upholstering a piece can cost a pretty penny so instead, paint was mixed with fabric medium and the entire sofa was painted. It's a neat trick to spruce up a new to you find when you're working within a budget. The cushions were recovered to give things a little extra oomph and the final look is just fantastic.
