Part I: Painting my leather-ottoman-seat cover-headboard

I went to Michael's arts & crafts supply store, looking for a spray paint that would work well on my DIY leather-ottoman-seat cover-headboard. (it's kind of a mouth full.) Originally, I had plans of reupholstering the headboard.. but I thought against it since it was proving to be difficult.
Voila! DIY bed headboard.
I came across this multi-purpose spray paint called 'Liquitex.' I walked around the store looking for an employee that would be able to answer some of my questions regarding the product, but with no such luck- I did a quick google search and bought the spray paint anyway since it was water-based.. I figured I'd do a spot test on the back of the seat and if it didn't work out - I'd use the spray to stencil my wall. (If you recall in my last post, I was having difficulty and tiring myself out stenciling my wall using a paint roller.)

Well, this stuff works! Not only did it pass the leather spot test, it made my job to stencil my wall so much EASIER. Here's what the leather-ottoman-seat cover-headboard looks like with two even coatings of the spray paint. I need to buy a few more cans to add one last coating to my headboard, and to get stenciling.
In color: Neutral Grey

I have found website which offer to dramatically increase traffic to your site they claim they managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services you could also get lot more targeted traffic from search engines as you have now. I used their services and got significantly more visitors to my blog. Hope this helps :) They offer best services to increase website traffic Take care. Mike

Covers in breathable, heavy duty poly-cotton fabric are also in demand because they do not stick to you as neoprene or vinyl seat covers will.

Thanks for the support everyone!

Wow that can is a miracle worker. How much did it cost overall? Hopefully not as much as a new ottoman? I would have loved to see the finished result.

@Edith I used about 3 cans. Each can was $11 at Michaels, but I got them for 40% off, using a coupon from their smartphone app. You can see the final result by clicking the link above titled "Part II.."
Thanks for visiting!
