Hello. This ottoman was given to me a few years ago by a friend of mine. I LOVE IT! I use it to sit on while I paint because it’s got a comfortable cushiony, big, seat and wheels. I can spin around and what furniture painter wouldn’t love that? It’s just not the prettiest thing, so I thought I’d give her a makeover.
So here she is. This is the before. Not so great looking but the potential is there…
I cleaned the ottoman with Simple Green, rinsed with water and put on a coat of FAB! by Heirloom Traditions, a dual purpose product, primer & sealer for fabric. I used FAB! mainly for the primer. It might not have been necessary over vinyl but I went ahead and put a coat on regardless. Below is a picture immediately after a coat of FAB!
You can see more on FAB! in this chair makeover I did here.
Then for the GOLD! This stuff is great! I put on three light layers of Heirloom Tradition’s Metallic Masters Top Coat in Golden Glimmer. One of the best things about it, Metallic Masters Top Coats will seal your chalk type and milk painted surfaces and add a durable, scruable protection to your painted surface. Swoon! I was in LOVE! I have a huge place in my heart for gold.
Here is a short video below applying the Metallic Masters in Golden Glimmer by Heirloom Traditions.
And here’s the result. I’m so pleased with it. Who would’ve thought brown 70’s pleather could look this good? I want it in my living room now. I’m gonna have to find myself another scoot scoot to sit on while I paint.
