$2 chair redo and a few other things

*Warning, Random post.... I'm writing this during the AMA's so I'm keeping one eye on Nicki Minaj (who else is obsessed with her??)*
Anna and I went thrifting a couple of weeks ago and she spotted this chair for me. I always drag her (read: beg her to come) along with me cause she has an awesome eye for this kind of stuff.
It had really damaged caning in the back but it was only $2.00. SOLD. This weekend we cut the caning out and painted it black using Jenny's recommendation for oil based paint (Sidemark: I LOVE oil based paints and use them whenever I can, the finish always beats any latex I've seen) 
I've had my eye on this fabric for a while and this was the perfect place for it. Every house needs a little dalmatian print, right??



 We had one of those weekends that make life worth living. Plenty of relaxing and a breakfast date at the Gourmet shop that included the perfect latte...
And its the LAST DAY to enter our giveaway... go here to WIN!

And I need ya'lls advice. I REALLY REALLY need a new camera. bad. see pics above of the chair.... grainy. Drives me crazy. So Santa is bringing me one for Christmas but I dont know which one to get. I don't want a crazy expensive one but I do want a nice one. Do any of ya'll have ones that you love? Pls share :-)

How was ya'lls weekends??

The chair is my favorite. Now I wish I kept it and did it myself instead of encouraging you to get it. :)

The chair looks awesome, great job! I use a Cannon Rebel T1i, and really love it. The model is probably about 3 years old now, so you might be able to find a used one on Ebay or something for a decent price.
