New Products Help Expand Creativity and Save Time
What if you could change the color of your pillows with the spray of a bottle? How about changing the color of a rug, comforter, bath mats or even interior of your car. It really sounds too good to be true but it's finally available.
I ran across this upholstery fabric paint called Simply Spray. To be fair, I really couldn't imagine that this would work, and work well. I was figuring that it would leave the fabric stiff and uncomfortable to be around. I was wrong.
I tried an pillow to start with. On the left is the "before" pillow. It has a textured fabric in gold. This fabric spray stays soft, is permanent and easy to use. Naturally it came with directions that I followed to assure that I did it correctly.
I used the color Hunter green for this pillow. Here is the photo of the pillow with "one" coat of spray.
I let this sit for a while before applying a second coat.
Can you imagine spraying a couch over? or the upholstery of a car? I'm not sure I'm that brave, but I bet it works. I was thinking about some other uses and came up with spraying my upholstered kitchen chairs. That saves a lot of work.
Here is the second coat. The fabric is all filled in and very rich looking. The color is solid but you still see the texture. Also notice that the color is a true hunter green, just like the bottle describes.
A truly amazing product with many uses. This spray is specifically created for upholstery.

I found this product at Joann's but I've seen it at Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
They also make a stencil paint that you can use for fabric and
a spray for clothing. I'm going to give both a try and see what happens. This opens up a whole new realm of possibilities.
I have several sisal rugs that have gotten dull over the years. This spray would make them look like new. Many colors are available. If you need more info check out the site here.
