Many Firsts

Last month, I FINALLY went to the infamous Alameda Flea Market. Ive always been determined to re upholster and paint old and used furniture. Well, I took a stab at it. Here are the results.

The chair is done! Well, almost. I think it looks pretty great with the original wood coloring. Now debating if I should paint it a white gloss or not. (I was thinking of going for a Jonathan Alder/ Trina Turk look.) What do you think???
