Here is what they looked like before:
Tidy....plain....dark....in need of something....client decided she'd like them lighter but not white or cream so we went with a colour she had already used in her home, Resene Sisal.
In case you were wondering, the real estate magazine pages under the chairs are not to protect my paint drop cloth (that is well beyond help!), they are so I can spin the chair frames around as I paint them :)
I am working inside today because it is raining so hard, and really cold too. Too cold for paint to dry properly in the garage....much more comfortable inside!
