I don’t know what kind of paint you were using, but if its semi gloss or satin a magic eraser should help. Just wet the magic eraser and try rubbing it over the paint. If that doesn’t work I would try a little fingernail polish remover, but try it an area that you can test first. I have leather couches and I’m just trying to through some ideas out there for you. I hope this helps.

If the magic eraser doesn't work, I would try a little bit of mineral spirits. It can act as a paint thinner but is likely to be kinder to the fabric than acetate (nail polish remover.) When you finish, I would wipe it down with a damp cloth and then a little bit of mineral oil or tanner's conditioner for leather to keep it from drying out.

This may sound odd, but it just worked the other day for me. My husband suggested it and I was a bit weary but I tried and what do ya know. Armor all. It took the paint right off the leather on my brand new couches.

Good luck.
