Answered
I got this chair at an estate sale, it was in pretty bad shape!! Brought it home, fixed all the cracks, fixed the broken arm on back...I drilled hole in both pieces and put in dowel, glued and reattached. I bought paintable/stainable bondo to repair seat! Well... it did not work!! After DAYS of repair... my stain will not cover the bondo!! Net step???? The only thing I could come up with is paint it!! What I need from all you WONDERFUL people.....COLOR?? Or Colors?? Please let me know what you think!! I hate to paint it, as it is very old... but this is what I am left with!! ALL suggestions are VERY appreciated!!
