Dining Chair transformation!

BEWARE!
 The before may make you vomit gross you out, but I saw the potential!
I got these chairs from a relative, that has had them in storage for about a decade. They were cleaning it out and decided they would never refinish this dining set, so they were off to the D.I. Then they remembered that I had been searching for a new set, and asked me if I wanted them...
I hesitated a bit once I saw them, but I thought I could see what I could do. The worst that could happen was I painted them the wrong color and had to redo it right, plus, if I couldn't get them how I wanted I could just give them to the D.I. and keep up my searching! They were practically free!
The before:

They did inform me that the beauty mark of a stain right there is actually mahogany stain that had spilt on it years ago! That made me feel a bit better!
The after:
I felt like I needed something to add to the chairs because I have a problem they seemed dull to me, so I reverted back to my ever so handy wood scrolls (maybe I just have an addiction to wood scrolls?)
Plopped one of those on the back of each chair and glazed it to add a little pop!
I need to finish my glazing around it, but I ran out, one of the many problems I faced while redo this dining set!
Anyway, I am quite pleased with the end result. I am still trying to find 4 coordinating fabrics to go on all 4 chairs ( I have a bench on one side of my table). Either that or I want one fabric that has teals, browns, greens, oranges, yellows, and purples or reds. If you know of any fabric that matches that...LET ME KNOW! I will love you forever!
The "TWO tables into ONE" transformation will hopefully be tomorrow, if I finish it today! If not...I will be ticked, sometimes my ideas in my head are almost impossible and it drives ME the HUBBY crazy!
 Maybe I will just give a partial reveal tomorrow if I still am not finished. (In my head it's going to be beautiful, maybe it won't work out like that in real life though?)
Have Happy Weekend People!!

Tasha, this is too weird because I just started working on my very similar chairs this morning. The forecast called for a warm and sunny day, but it's cool, overcast and windy, not great weather for spray painting. I also have two table, but decided to use the ONE that I bought separately from the dining set that the chairs are a part of.

I' looking forward to what you do with your set.
