Chairs

I finally got around to painting the rocker , I cut the latex paint with water so that it would absorb in to the wood and become part of it . I plan to rub on some white paint and sand it back quite a bit .
I re-did two chairs so far , my wrist was not feeling too good about getting all the staples out from the old fabric removal so I stopped at two , I plan to add dark nail heads or tacks for some contrast , as well my stapler quit on me , this makes two , an electric one and now a manual both garbage , I hate having to buy equipment for one thing over and over , good thing they are inexpensive.

I definitely think you need to treat yourself to a fancy pneumatic stapler with all the upholstery you do.

Can you tell me how you cut in the water? What ratio, if any? I have a wooden high chair to play with!
