Upholstery paint

See also

Upholstery paint is a great way to improve the appearance of your furniture, blinds, carpet, or fabric covered home furnishings. This paint works by covering the old fabric of these items, covering up any stains or faded fabric.

Finding upholstery paint can be a bit difficult, but it is not impossible. To start, check at locally owned furniture stores. These establishments usually carry a lot of products to help their customers get the most life out of their furniture, unlike major chains that will encourage you to throw out the old item and purchase a new one from their store. Shops that produce their own furniture, especially upholstered items, are very likely to have this paint in stock.

If you cannot find upholstery paint in a furniture store, try looking for it at a craft store. Many craft stores carry these products because they are very popular among people who design furniture and home furnishings. This paint can be used for everything from making doll house furniture to creating unique throw rugs, making it a popular product in a lot of craft stores. Unfortunately, because it can be used for a lot of different things, this product tends to get placed on different aisles in every craft store. Some stores put it with furniture making tools, while others place it in the same aisle as craft paints. Be prepared to ask a store employee where it is located.

If you cannot find this paint in a craft store, it may also be a good idea to try locally owned hardware and paint stores. These stores tend to stock a variety of hard to find paint products because it keeps customers coming back to their stores. These stores are also good places to learn how to use this product and get advice if you have never used upholstery paint before.
