Last, but not least...
The other two things to consider when you're choosing your first piece are to consider the size of the project, and the size of the area you have to paint in. Try to choose something that you can easily move around by yourself. It shouldn't be too big, awkwardly shaped, or too heavy.
Also, try to choose something that doesn't have too many moving parts. Minimize the amount of drawers, or doors that need removing from their hinges etc...
Last of all, try to find a piece that doesn't require any major repairs or alterations. It's really satisfying to successfully fill holes, mend cracks etc... but for your first project, try to concentrate on honing your brush technique, and getting a feel for the paint and finish products.
If you choose a small, fuss free piece, you'll have your project finished within a few hours - ready to show off to the world (or at least your household). You will also be ready to hunt down a more in-depth project for your next challenge!
