I would think it would depend on the fabric of the cushions. It looks like what is used in the video is a canvas fabric, so it was probably prepped, and is good to accept the paint. I don't know how it would hold up. I've seen other types of paint used on fabrics over the years, some stand up to use better than others.
If you're thinking about just painting the current fabric in a pup, all the fabrics original to our two pups were very textured, and would have been difficult to paint.
I made new canvas cushion covers when we replaced the foam in our first pup, then made slip covers for those and the seats in our second one. I work much better with fabric than with paint, though.
I didn't watch the whole video but I skimmed through it and I could barely tell the difference. They should have used a darker color just for illustrative purposes.
I'm not familiar with "chalk paint" but I can't see this being a good idea. Seems it would rub/crack off and get everywhere (as well as look terrible after a short time). Unless the paint is more of a dye.
I've used fabric spray paint on automotive carpet before and it holds up quite well. I imagine it would work on cushions. Next time your neighbor throws out a couch, grab on of the cushions off of it and use it as a test piece.
Interesting. Might look more seriously at that, if I keep my popup.
I've seen it done on HGTV but not in person. Looked good on the show.
Yep, painting with a brush? Naw... too much work. I've used the upholstery spray paint too. Works pretty well and comes in a variety of colors.
Darn, I already bought the upholstery fabric! Oh, well.
