How many cans for my furniture project?


Example of how much paint for a lounge chair

USA Furniture Chart: 1 Yard = 1 CAN UPHOLSTERY Fabric Paint

1 Can Upholstery paint covers aprox 80cm2 -1sqm

Allow 1 can of Upholstery Spray Paint per 1 square yard of fabric (1 yard² = .836127 m²).

Materials with a nap (ie: velvets) or pile (ie: carpets) will absorb more paint due to the greater surface area

of fibre needing coverage.

Allow a little extra for any fiddly details such as piping and zippers.

To restore the original colour usually requires less paint than a colour change.  

To change colour completely, choose a paint colour that is darker than the original colour.
