I loved the shape but I didn’t want the hassle of recovering, so I thought why not paint it? To be honest if you sit still for too long in my house you get painted! 🙂
I started off with a slightly watered down ASCP in Country Grey and after several coats it had covered well. (I have since found out you can also dampen the fabric with a spray beforehand to help the paint spread easily).
The imperfections on the polystyrene make for a more interesting pattern on the stripes. Just paint a nice even coat of ASCP and ‘print’ with a rocking motion.
Once dry I gave the whole thing a couple of good coats of AS wax and the ottoman now has a fabulous leather feel. Perfect!!
Have a try and show me how you get on. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Gill xx (Mrs Giddy Goat)
