Bentwood Chair Makeover

I found a bentwood chair that had been painted with a not very nice red coat of varnish...

It just looks... reeeeeaaalllly brown and unattractive.

But I like the peacock design on the seat.

I gave the whole chair a make up job - painted all over in Old White paint, then used acrylic gold on the seat and around the arms, then covered that over with another coat...  After a good bit of distress work and a clear wax, I am really pleased with the finish, fantastic!
