Efex on Fabric
Our clever friend in Montreal is at it again. This time with some striking and different uses for our appliques.
You see Johanne had this old sofa. Great french bones but the fabric was very outdated. Not in bad shape, just old fashion. Hmm… what’s a creative to do?
Well she started out painting the sofa. As an Annie Sloan stockist, she knew that to paint fabric successfully you need to water down the paint and put several coats on. The actually painting time is not that much, but you do have some drying time on a project like this.
Because she started with a dark green and textured fabric she had to take her time and let the project progress on it’s schedule.
She clearly had some time to think because her clever idea of adding Efex to the side of the fabric was wonderful.
After several coats of paint she finished the project by waxing the wood. No need to wax the fabric especially if it is textured.
Voila, a wonderful and unique sofa saved by Chalk Paint® and Efex
