What! Paint a sofa. I love this idea. Great way to give an old sofa a brand new look for less money. You can choose any color you like. You can even paint a chair or ottoman. Super idea too. I love these DIY'S.

How much paint was needed? I have two love seats I want to paint. They both have dark stripes so I suspect two or three coats will be needed. Did you spray sections with water before applying the second coat?

I wouldn't have thought to paint a couch, either. This project looks good though! Nice and new.

I was nervous that the paint would crack as soon as you sat down, but after reading through the blog post, it looks like the paint holds up quite well!

I would never have thought to paint a couch! This looks super interesting.

Has anyone tried this? It for sure LOOKS great. I just wonder if the couch is uncomfortable and scratchy afterwards.
