I hemmed and hawed about what color to go with. I thought maybe an aqua, but then I decided to go neutral. This khaki color is almost the same color as a drop cloth, just a little more grey.
My thoughts on painting upholstery...the jury is still out. No doubt it is cheaper and less painful than recovering the chair, but I am not sure I am sold on the finished feeling. I keep thinking what it would feel like to sit on in the middle of summer with shorts on. HMMM
