Painting fabric furniture  Materials: 1 quart of latex satin paint in the color of your choice (I used Valspar Catwalk) 1 paint brush (3-4") 1 can white spray paint if you want to do the legs 2 large bottles of white school glue water a spray bottle extra fine sand paper furniture nails ( they come in packages of 25 for $1 at Lowes)  How to: 1. Clean furniture well of any dust or stains if there are any 2. Spray furniture down with water. You want it to be wet, but not soaked. 3. Mix 1:1 parts water and glue in an old bowl or cup 4. Mix 1:1 parts glue mixture and paint 5. Add in 1/2 the amount of water to the paint/glue mixture to water it down. So you want 2 parts paint mixture to 1 part water. 6. Paint your first coat on the furniture. It will be thin and the fabric will show through. Let dry. 7. Add 2 more coats, allowing each to dry between coats. 8. Once dry, sand with fine sand paper. Barely sand. Do NOT put pressure on it, as to remove the paint. This is what makes the paint soft. It will feel hard as a rock before this step, and then you won't be able to tell it's paint once you're done. 9. Paint the legs and add the furniture nails if you wanted to add them. To space the nails out evenly, I folded a piece of paper to about 1/2" and then taped it to make it stiff and used it as a spacer. LIGHTLY hammer in the nails. It is not necessary to pound them in. They will go in easily. If you pound them, it will dent and scratch the nail heads and will also cause them to go in crooked. Believe me, I threw about 3 away before I realized, a tap is all you need.   And that's it. Easy and cheap! by claudia
