explorer console paint help

Today I picked up a center console out of an older Explorer that was in excellent shape although the only problem is that it doesn't match my interior at all. I know I can easily get some paint and spray up the plastic but the arm rest is fabric that is the same wrong color. Is there anyway to paint this as well?

Also how do I go about getting paint that matches the rest of the interior?

I did mine in black with the Duplicolor Vinyl paint, then some clear coat on top. It was orginally gray but it was really nasty looking so I just painted it black.

I'm thinking I want it gray though, so it matches all the other interior pieces.

Duplicolor makes a gray interior that matches the Rangers gray interior.

That's what I got, except I was just hoping the color was the same. It turned out really well, I'll get some pictures when it's light out.
