Love the chairs. Very sturdy and the style is great. I bought the chairs with the intention of scuffing them up and applying an antique glaze so that they would appear old (to better match with my antique dining table). Of the 4 chairs I purchased, one had been painted red and black (which was only apparent after I sanded off a bit of the white finish). Not a huge deal; it just makes the chair seem a bit less perfect, which is the style I was after anyway. Just a heads-up though.
