To Distress or Not to Distress; that is the Question

Hello Everyone!

Hope everyone is having a great week.  I need help with a little project that I have done.

I have a really old wood chair that I've been working on for a while.  Not because it was difficult to do but because I had to keep starting and stopping on the project.  Here is the before picture.
Here is the back of the seat as I took it off.
Notice the old rusty tacks.  This was not a staple job.  That's how I could tell it was old.
After I peeled the fabric back I noticed the padding was old and kind of yuck.  I didn't want to take it off though so I just added some bamboo batting on top to make it more cushy.
So here is what I finished up with; a new paint job, extra padding and new fabric.  However, I'm still trying to decide if I should distress it a bit or leave it the crisp whiteness that it is now.


Let me know, give me a vote, I need help! 

I'm needing to get it back into this room.
So until next time...

Have a blessed day,

maggie jane
