Distressed Dining Room Chairs

Stuffy antique Queen Ann dining room chairs are given a softer farmhouse vibe.

About 10 years ago I bought this set of 4 antique Queen Ann dining room chairs off of Craigslist for under $100! They weren't pretty but they were a really good deal and I saw potential. At first I thought I would just paint them a solid color so i began to prime them. Of course once they dried I changed my mind. I wanted to sand them down to their natural wood. Once i began the sanding process I found that I actually liked some of the white paint. Somehow this distressed paint look was really pretty. Some new fabric on the cushions was all they needed to be complete. Do you like this distressed look or would you go a different route?
