Progress on the Bench.

Well I started working on the bench I found last weekend. I was going to try and recover it, but found that someone had glued everything together. So I tried dyeing the velvet. I put some fabric dye and water in to a spray bottle and went to town. I'm pretty happy with it so far, at least now it won't clash with the room where I want to put it. Now I need your opinion. I started drybrushing the metal pieces. Do you like this finish? Or do you think it needs a solid coat of paint?
I didn't get my cloche finished to my liking, but check out Marty's Awesome Cloche Party for some real beauties....

I like it the way it is turning out. I guess it depends how it looks in the room.

Where are you getting fabric dye?
