Dining room set revived

A while back I asked what I should do with my dining room set now that I have changed the seats. I got an overwhelming response and basically everyone voted to paint it white. After living with the set for awhile with the new seats to see how I liked this first change, I decided to paint one chair to see how it would look (this was also inspired by a recent purchase that I'll share with you later).

After lightly sanding (to get rid of the gloss the chairs currently had), priming and painting (both primer and paint were the spray variety), the chair now looks like this


 And if we do a side by side by side comparison, this is how the chair has progressed. At this point I can barely recognize it!

I really think this will brighten up the dining room. I'm excited to get the rest of the set painted even though after one chair my hand is killing me. It may take me a bit, but I am definitely on the painting the set white train.
