After I finished the chair I decided to lay in the background for the animals. I used a black background to make the colors of the animals stand out more. I may rethink that later.
I put the finials on to test, and decided I needed more wood putty. Sanded area, glued finials, added more wood putty.
This weekend I'll sand again, repaint the purple and start working on the designs again. It's a process, right?
