They were in great condition with the exception of water damage on the tops.
Love those barley twist legs.
I sanded down the tops and edges to remove the damage.
Then painted with Americana Decor Chalky Paint in Carbon.
Followed by a dark waxing - Howard Citrus Shield.
People who use chalk paint know that black is more charcoal as you can see.
Of course there is a layer of yellow pollen.
Loaded up and ready to go to the booth.
I had to stack them - they are so massive.
Waxed paper to protect from scratching.
Yes, I know it looks nicer with paper doilies, but I forgot them.
They have found a forever home.
