Refinished Bar Stools - Before and After

 We bought these 2 stools unfinished about a decade ago while we were living in NC, newly married.  Along the way we stained them with a glossy cherry gel stain, but now we have little use for them in this house.  We have no bar!  I decided to try out a new refinishing technique on them and try to sell them.  What do you think?

I used a dark gray under a light blue-gray, using a chipping and roughing technique.  They're sealed and buffed to a smooth, lovely shine.
It's hard to capture the actual color - the camera keeps correcting it more blue!  But they're very gray.
