I will suscribe if you answer. Where do you buy this paint?

Kate Bauer Art says:

Love this but it would’ve been nice to see the finished product…. :/

Steve Susoyev says:

You’ve inspired me to paint an ugly old stained upholstered headboard and give it a new life. Will post photos when it’s done. And I agree with all the comments about your positive energy and enthusiasm. Thanks!

Noemy Monica says:

So cool!!!

Julia Ebbenhorst says:

This is amazing! I love that couch, you are very talented 🙂

Natural Permanent Makeup says:

You inspired me to paint my chairs. 🙂

Sara Beth Mattis says:

Random, but you look sooo much like a great friend of mine.

Rochelle Jhulyos says:

wow, è bellissimo!

Sarah Masters says:

Do you feel this would work well with a fur type fabric with a short 1 cm nap? How did it hold up as far as color transfer?

veverly sumlin says:

can you do another piece of furniture

Eva says:

Hi, I know this is an old video, but was wondering if you can use this chalk paint on a microfiber sofa? And if you’ve experimented on one before. Thank you!

Jodie Marshall says:

This is maybe the coolest diy project I have ever seen!

Susan Maigua says:

This is beutiful,,can i use any type of paint?

Faith Nelson says:

i think there are strips of faux nailhead you could use, rather than cutting and applying each by hand

Georgiana Dumitrache says:

Hi from Belgium, you are awesome! Any paint from you is good for anything? Like chair or my cauch (textile) for example. Thank you! You are doing a great job with everything!

Erin Averyt says:

Will this work for an hand me down sofa’s cushions that an dog keeps peeing on

rae solstice says:

I had to comment because you really made me chuckle: “If you can afford a sofa from Anthropology that would totally be better.” Your result is very very good *and* you’re recycling so no landfill. Perhaps a better option than Anthroplogy despite the effort required???!!! If you ever read this, do you happen to know if the liquid patina would also work with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint?

Cheryl Hillman says:

I’m on the fence about this one… My reason? I think a HUGE step was missing! If this item (old as it looks) was ONLY $20 I would have added another step and cleaned it first! I can’t image applying paint over the dirty cloth .

Jacquelyne McKinley says:

Could this paint be used on a suede material?

Heather Estes says:

Also, what about a chair with an ugly print?

Jordan McMahon says:

you sound really minnesotan lol

H No says:

1st, you clean the things.
THEN, you do the things!

Nawaf Alotaibi says:

Great video love it
btw the original sofa looked exactly like central perk’s

antnicki says:

DEBI!!! I Love watching you!! You’re fun, interesting, informative and just so so TALENTED!!!! Keep making your videos. Thank you so much, Nicolette

Joyce Ridilla says:

will this work with microfiber fabric?

Miranda MOORE says:

just wondering, can you use bleach to lift the colour of the original sofa?

Ken Gill says:

Does it work on a rug?
