Customizing: Refurbished pink chaiselongue with red velvet

This chaiselongue is sold on ebay under the name Barbie but it is only 1:12 dollhouse size. And looking as cheap as it costs. I refurbished it today with velvet that came from the envelope of an old pocket calendar. Look, I can even use the metal sign for my steampunk stuff. Nothing gets wasted ;)

Showing some details for the armrest - as you surely all know, you need to cut out triangles, to form it around a round surface.

I just winged the rest - put it on, cut more off, tried to form it around the corners. I am quite pleased with the result. I did not want to put velvet on the backrest, as I liked the detail there and it would have been lost. So I just painted it. Wondering if I should do the dots in golden paint or would that be too much?
