Sometimes I jump into a project without proper prep work. Like neglecting to mask off areas where I don’t want to get paint.
I wanted to touch up a few areas on this chair, but I didn’t like the result, so I kept painting. Before I knew it, I had painted the whole chair. Well, except for the fabric.
I should say, I didn’t intentionally paint the fabric. I swiped one small area on the seat, just under the back, with the paint brush. Yikes!
I told myself it wasn’t really noticeable, and left it while I glazed and applied wipe on poly. Which means that spot sat there mocking me for a week, maybe two.
I finally decided to try Oops Remover on it. I learned about this product from the painters who painted our living room. They used it on spots they had tracked onto our carpet- worked perfectly.
Just squirt a little on a paper towel and blot until paint is gone. It really is amazing how well this stuff works, even after the paint has dried.
You can still see a faint shadow of paint, but much better, don’t you think?
Be sure to test Oops Remover on an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn’t damage or discolor your fabric/ carpet.
Now that I’ve removed the accidental paint from the fabric, I’m thinking I would love to add a stencil of some kind. I’m pretty nervous about messing it up, though. Any tips for stenciling on a non-firm surface?
