Chairs Before

Grandparents finally cleaned out the that meant all the furniture came to me!  Oh joy!  My dad brought me 4 of these rosewood rose back dining chairs...three are salvageable the 4th will have to be repurposed somehow.  

I have painted 2 of the three using a gesso/paint mix that is similar to chalk paint but way cheaper!  I love it!  But do want to try the plaster of paris/paint mix on the next chair!
