Dear AT,

I bought this chair at a thrift store a while back and I am finally in the process of fixing it up.

I recovered the cushions and sanded the frame.

I was initially going to stain it a very dark walnut color, but now I'm having second thoughts because I'm afraid it might look too dark.

The chair has a lot of great detail and I want to highlight its character.

I would love any advice on stain color, paint color, etc.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks! Zhiela
