    Just got these babies after a visit to Rome in November. Can't wait to start work on them but feel a little bit out of my league. Done many projects in the past but never with chairs like this. They're gilded, gypsum all over a beautifully carved wooden frame. Was hoping to keep the patina but they're pretty beaten up so I was thinking of releafing them? Opinions on that are welcome.
    Plan of attack was:
    Treat for woodworm although not active.
    Remove old upholstery
    Fill in gypsum, sand and re-leaf the gold all over.
    Leave the brass.
    Upholster chair with as much original material as possible.
    Sound ok?

      Hi Phil, thanks for your comment, May I ask if you restored yours yourself too and what you think of my brief plan... Bit intimidated to be honest.
