Chair Makeover

Remember these guys? I bought them on Craigslist last Fall and asked you all for some input on what should do with them.
I love a good DIY but these were a little more challenging than I had anticipated. The wood wouldn’t take normal stain and I wasn’t feeling painting over the wood so I thought we were stuck. After a little research, I finally found gel stain and it worked like a charm. 
After staining it I took it to a local upholsterer and had them re-cover the chairs in West Elm’s dove gray velvet. It’s such a gorgeous fabric!
They’ve made it all the way across the pond and they’re perfect in our little flat.

What do you think?
