"PARIS" chairs, what was once old is new again!

Found vintage metal folding chairs at a garage sale and the woman told me her husband insisted on painting them.  I knew I would come up with an idea for them but didn't have the heart to repaint after all of that work.  I found this lovely Parisian themed paper and decoupaged the seat and back.  I trimmed them with bronze and gold paint and voila!  All the show participants loved the display and the chairs were the first items to go.  I'm so excited because this is my first post so any suggestions/comments are welcome.
