Simply Spray Upholstery Fabric Paint GIVEAWAY! (GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED)

(now closed)


Recently, Simply Spray was nice enough to send me a few cans of their Simply Spray Upholstery Fabric Paint.  This product promises to “rejuvenate, restore, or change the color of fabric and can be used on sofas, chairs, pillows, carpets, curtains, lampshades as well as car, boat and RV interior.”

You may know that my DIY mantra boils down to “find thing, spray paint thing,” so naturally this called for my excitedface!  I could basically reupholster a chair with one hand!

They offer tons of colors, and you’ll never guess what I picked.  Ok, you will.  Gray.

And here is the $5 beauty that I dragged home from a yard sale to be my guinea pig:

Sure, I was having doubts, but Simply Spray ensures that the paint works on all absorbant materials, in addition to being non-toxic, non-flammable, permanent, fast drying and won’t rub off once dry.”

So, I began to spray!  And it looked amazing.  But uh-oh … the paint was not joking around about being absorbent.  It quickly got sucked right into the yellow fabric.  (It was actually a bit shaggier than it looks in the picture.  You know how when you can run your hand across certain fabric and it will lay differently, and you can even play tic-tac-toe on the couch fabric when you’re bored, it was kind of like that.  You know?)

Anyway.

My chair was slurping up the paint as fast as I could spray it.  I concentrated on the back of the chair first, convinced that if I just kept thoroughly spraying, I could really soak it in there and the chair would stop guzzling up my paint.  I burned through an entire can this way.  It was during my frantic paint dance in the driveway that my husband came out and said that I was probably scaring the neighbors again, and I should also consider spraying a light coat over the entire thing, then let it dry, THEN go over it again.

Oh.  Duh. He must have like, read the can or something.

So that’s what I did, and things were considerably easier. It’s quite surprising how soft it feels.  Not stiff or crispy, it just feels like it did before.  And I love that it’s non-toxic too.  Now my humble $5 chair looks pretty great, I think!

(kind of looks black, but I used Charcoal Gray.)

All in all, this chair took six cans of paint total, but I think you could get by on way less if you followed these tips that I learned in this experience:

Don’t use a shaggy, nappy, furry fabric.  Something with a tight weave will need SO MUCH less paint.

Don’t stop and take a break halfway through a can.  They are good for a one-time use only. I probably lost about an entire can’s worth of paint by not continuously spraying until the paint ran out.  Because once you stop, the nozzle clogs quickly and is practically impossible to get going again. 

You can accomplish a drastic color change, like I did here, but it will require more coats.  Sticking closer to similar shades is your best bet. Also, you can’t really lighten a dark fabric.  Trying to repaint this chair yellow would not fly!

So, are you dying to try some Simply Spray out yet?  It’s so fun, I even did a quick little spray on a pair of canvas shoes!   They have fourteen colors available and are always adding new shades.  Enter now to get your hands on some too!

  114. Michelle says:

    What a great idea! Thanks for getting the word out on this I had never heard of it.

  115. HOLY CRAP! All your previous spray painted couch posts left me very skeptical, but I’ve now come full cirlce. I have two worn plum chairs that NEED these cans of paint!

  116. Hmmm, I have a few ideas for this stuff. I remember a friend telling me that she used fabric dye in a spray bottle to dye a couch. Her process sounded long and tedious. This sounds so much easier!

  117. Wow, all my dreams are coming true!

  118. oohhh~ i have been meaning to try this! thanks for sharing your experience, this helps! i think i’ll do it now!

  129. This is brilliant! I am a bit curious on how it feels though. Can you tell that it was sprayed at all? You said it does not feel stiff, but is there any tell tale sign at all? I am curious what fabric types you can try it on, I would assume plush would be a no-no. I would love to try it out, it is pretty amazing!

  130. I would love to try this on a chair!

    I just order 20 cans to paint my lovey CL couch black
    (I’ll be putting it on my blog when I’m done: freetofurnished.blogspot.ca )

    but then I realized how awesome the piping and buttons would look red!
    I would really love a couple cans of red to bring out the best in my new couch.

    Thanks so much for the givaway, and I really love the chair!

  206. What will they think of next? This looks so easy. Can’t wait to try it.

    Oooh, very excited to try this product!

  210. I have seen so many people featured here (on the coolest blog EEHVER!) sorry…had to add it :-) anyhow, you have had some of the neatest transformations of upholstered dining room chairs that get turned into these adorable little skirted cutesy, precious chairs that I’m not, nor ever will be talented enough to do. BUT…I could make some really cool changes to those chairs that are begging to be free of their odd egg-shell off white and turned into a color that says “come….relax, sit on me”…OK, well maybe not that, but I am dying to try this stuff out! Thanks for another amazing share <3

  211. Thanks for introducing me to this product. I can’t wait to try it.

  212. What? That’s awesome. I tried a nice latex paint on my fabric headboard and although it looked great, it felt like burlap when I was done – I could think of many great uses for this paint!!

  213. Oh my word! This is amazing. I’ve been wanting a crazy colored couch, but all the ones I like are too expensive and I’m afraid of reupholstering one. YAY!

  214. I seriously seriously have another tab open to their site! I have a chair I am dying to try it on!!!

  215. I would love to give this a try!
