Painting a Club Chair

More progress on changing up the family room:

 This week I painted the fabric on my old club chair.

 It has had many, many slipcovers,
but I wanted to do something a little different this time.

 I am thinking of using nail head trim on the arms,
I think that would jazz it up a bit.

 There are many websights telling you how to do this, 
I found several on Pinterest.

 Basically I mixed about equal amounts of grey paint 
and fabric medium (found at Michael's).
The only tip would be to use a shade of paint
a little darker than you want because the medium is white
and lightens the paint color slightly.

 But I think it looks good with the new couch and curtains.

This is my next project in this room!
