At last they’re done!

The dining chairs have been given a face-lift in grey and white.

Just a reminder – this is what they looked like before:

Now, after sanding back, painting, adding words, sanding back the finish… (see previous posts for full details) they look like this!

What a difference a colour makes: they look like a completely different style of chair.

I knocked back the finish with a good sand (with fine grade sandpaper), and then tried a wash – but it actually just made it look dirty.  So I removed that pronto, and decided a rough sand might be enough:

I think that probably gives it enough interest.  I love the colour – the grey is so versatile and looks lovely with so many other hues and moods.
