Back in November I discovered Simply Spray Fabric Paint. I used it for a DIY Tie-Dye Snowman Shirt. You can see the tutorial here: Tie-Dye Snowman Shirt. It worked so well, that I started talking to my husband about spraying the fabric on our EasyWalker Duo. The EasyWalker Duo is one of the best strollers – HUGE, but so easy to maneuver. And it easily handles my boys for theme park use and nighttime walks. My boys are now 4 and 5 and combined weigh 66 pounds. No problem for the EasyWalker Duo.
Anyways, the Florida sun and rain (yes, we often forget to pull it in the garage) has taken a beating on our beloved stroller these past 3 years. It went from being bright red to a dull red with black splotches. So that’s why I wanted to dye the fabric somehow and Fabric Spray seemed like the best option for a stroller.
Now, for my Snowman Tutorial, I used the spray that was made for apparel. In this instance, I used 1 can of Bright Red Upholstery Spray Paint. It is suggested for sofas, chairs, rugs, umbrellas, RVs, boats, cars, etc. So I wanted to try it on the stroller. They say if the material can absorb water, the paint will work. For example, check out this video from The Today Show:
It was easy to use. I shook the can and sprayed. When the can is not in use, you want to pull the trigger back manually otherwise aerosol will escape. I chose Bright Red, because I was hoping to rejuventate the stroller. In hindsight, I should have gone with black to hide the black stains. But I can do that next time. For now, the stroller has new life and I love it! One can evenly covers about 17 square feet, so I had some spray left over in case I needed to do a touch up. See the before and after picture below:
Once the paint dried (72 hour period), it was perfect. No rubbing off on my children’s clothes at all.I did spray their foot step (whoops) so next time I’d cover that better. That said, my husband buffed some of it off without a problem.
