In today’s video, I took a thrifted chair I purchased and turned it into a faux leather chair! I’ll show you how to take a piece of furniture and paint it to create faux leather. I’m honestly in awe of how it turned out, it was so satisfying to paint! In total, I spent less than $100 on this project. How do you think it turned out? Comment below!

      What happens if you spill an alcoholic drink on it? I wonder if it would work if you covered it with a soft wax like how they do for chalk paint

    What kind of finish was the paint? Matte? Gloss? Eggshell? Also what line? Reserve? Signature? Ultra? All of these paints have different properties, want to make sure I get the right one. Also, since I'm 2 months late to the game... how have these stood up over the last few months? Thank you. :)

    Please forgive if this has been mentioned already but I love the chair and how it turned out and would love to try this in my own thrifted chairs. First hygiene wise how does this work out? Like how do you confirm the thrifted chairs don’t have bugs, etc? Is there a certain type of chair that works best for this type of work and what are the lasting results? For some reason I envision paint cracking and peeling with excessive use over time? What types of paints work best or does it matter? I’ve seen a few chairs that I’ve been eyeing at my local thrift store but I’ve passed due to stains but if I can paint successfully to hide them, they could work. Any suggestions and insight? Thanks so much in advance.
