At last they’re done!

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.
