During my days off last week I also repainted the chair pictured above. My roommate and I went antiquing in Brooklyn and I fell head over heels for this little beauty. I loved the lines of the chair and the houndstooth fabric was very well preserved. I debated as to whether paint it in black or white and in the end decided on black because the white might have made the beige on the fabric look dirty. The key to success on projects like this is the taping. I took extra care to make sure that none of the fabric was ruined.
