French Dining Chair Makeover.

I have had fun breathing new life into a set of 6 dining chairs recently.
They have a lovely cane back and have come up beautifully with a new paint job and new seat covering. I stencilled the fabric on each one prior to upholstering. All that is needed now is double piping to hide all of those staples. I am thinking I will do a contrasting piping, maybe in grey.








Yes, that fish is wearing spectacles, and I have a teenage son with a fun sense of humour :)












My dilemma now is, as always, do I keep them or let someone else enjoy their beauty??? My current dining chairs (below)are a very hard act to follow!
