My $6 Goodwill Chairs were great to practice on. I learned a lot! I learned not to sand in the living room and to always wear a mask. It felt like I had swallowed bleach from the chemicals. Also, there was a lot of dead bugs in the chair and in the cushion that probably would have been better to remove while outside the house. I think I also didn't do enough sanding. I felt like everything that could go wrong did, which was great to learn from. Paint wouldn't stick because it was too cold outside, screws broke while taking out, seat wood was moldy, cushion foam was too small, two spray cans were not enough.... etc.
