Old French Chair in Chalk Paint?

I was out thrifting and I was lucky to find this french chair on the cheap. I am not sure how old it is or who the maker is. One thing I do know is that it is a well made chair and very sturdy. I am not sure if I should pay someone to recover it because the uphlostry is in pretty bad shape. I was told it would be about $150.00   to recover. I could problaby do it myself. Not sure what to do except I would like to give her a fresh coat of Old White Chalk Paint. Tell me what you think. Any ideas on the color of fabric?

Lots of nice detail to really make POP

The insides all look intact.

Nailheads are all there.
Well, Should I stay in the neutral colors or really jazz it up?
