Chair: before
Step1:  Remove the upholstered seat from the chair.

Step 2:  Clean the chair.

Step 3:  Lay down drop cloth, paper or plastic.

Step 4:  PRIME!  I was too anxious to prime and didn't get good coverage in one coat.
 I had to buy another can of paint and do 4 coats. 

I primed the lavender chair. I only used 1 can and applied 2 coats.
Don't skip this step!

These are the products I used. 

While the paint is drying reupholster the seat.

Step 1:  Remove the seat from the chair.
