Step 1

Apply strips of 1/4-inch-wide tape about 2 inches apart across a seat cushion.

Step 2

Use a wet cloth to dampen a workable area of the cushion. We dampened one taped-off strip at a time.

Step 3

Use a medium-size artist's brush to paint slanted lines across the dampened strip. Repeat with adjoining strip, dampening and then painting lines angled the opposite way of the first strip.

Step 4

Remove tape when paint is partially dry but still tacky. Let dry completely. Accentuate the cushion buttons by painting them in an accent color (we used a dark teal).
