Even though spray paint was technically invented in 1949 by a man, Edward Seymour, it was his wife Bonnie who asked him to come up with it.
It wasn't clear what she hoped to do with her paint in a can but my guess is it wasn't painting fabric for her dining room chairs.
But, why not? I was tired of the fabric on my dining room chairs. I paid $50 a yard for it so I've had to
live with it (and myself) for a long time.
I was in love with a fabric and a color that existed only in my head. I'd have to create it myself.
I'm lovin' my new look...
And, what's not to love? The new fabric was cheap (painted on drop cloth fabric with 2 cans of spray paint) and easy.
The zebra like stencil pattern was cut from poster board and the back side was coated with spray adhesive.
The stencil was pressed onto the fabric.
I used the darker bronze color first. It's a metallic but it doesn't look metallic on fabric, thank goodness. I sprayed it on lightly -- not saturating the fabric so it wouldn't be stiff.
Then, I used the avocado paint to get the illusive color I was looking for.
I'm showing this project off here...
