How to Personalize a Beach Chair

How to Personalize a Beach Chair

This chair cover from Jacquard Products fits over a typical metal folding chair. The canvas cover can be found through catalog companies or in fabric and craft stores. Also available are covers to go over certain styles of dining chairs. In doing this project, I found that you could stop painting at various points for several different versions of the pattern. If you are doing a whole set of chair covers, you might consider this for a variety of coordinating patterns.

Materials:

  • Canvas Beach Chair
  • Disposable palette or cups
  • Jacquard Fabric Paints: We used Textile Colors: White, Sky Blue, Yellow Ochre, Brown.
    • Textile Colors
    • Lumiere
    • Neopaque
    • Dye-Na-Flow
  • Sponge
  • 1" brush
  • 1" roller

Steps:

  1. Remove canvas from the chair and lay flat on a protected surface.
     
  2. On two separate palettes or plates, put a small amount of paint. One palette is for the sky and water colors and the other is for the sand colors.
     
  3. Divide the canvas horizontally into 3 sections. We went about halfway up for the sand, up another 8" for the water, and the remainder for the sky. Each section will blend into the other so exact dimensions are not important.
     
  4. Paint the canvas by using loose horizontal strokes. Load the brush or roller by dabbing it a little in the colors you want to use in that area. The water can be painted darker near the “shore” and fade as it moves towards the horizon. You can use a sponge for the sky to simulate clouds.
     
  5. Let dry completely and heat fix.
