Painted Upholstery Update

So after I already scrapped the idea of painting my chairs upholstery Robin Egg and started painting it with my black Yudu ink, a friend at work asked if I had tried to give the paint a light sanding to soften it up.  Hmmmm, I never thought of that!  Even after working 12 hours, when I got home, I did just that and ya know what?!?  It worked!!  Now I am having an inner conflict as to what color to paint the upholstery.  I love the Robin Egg and I originally imagined painting the frame of the chair in Old Ochre and the upholstery Robin Egg.  Do I continue with the black or go back to the Robin Egg?

These pics are not good, after all I'd just worked 12 hours, lol, but this is 2 watered down coats of the black Yudu ink and one coat of the Robin's egg.  I think that I may stick with the black this time, just because it might be really hard to cover that black up with the Robin's Egg.  I would love your thoughts on this!!

Time for this old girl to hit the hay!  Have a good night!! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
