Painted channel back chair

We got this chair at a city-wide yard sale for $5.. which was a steal. It had some stains on the fabric and knicks in the wood. so I decided that since we got it for so cheap I would try the Annie Sloan paint on the fabric. Here is how it started out.

I painted the  fabric in Annie Sloan old white, as I was painting it I would dip the brush in water then in the paint to make it more watery then paint it onto the fabric it took a few coats here in there as it was watered down. Then I used waverly inspirations paint for the arms and legs.I lightly distressed the fabric to make it smooth and heavily distressed the arms and legs then i waxed the whole thing.

Here is how it turned out

The paint and wax do not come off when you sit on it and the wax over the paint makes it feel like a soft leather. So what do y'all think of the chair now? Would you ever paint the fabric?
