Writing Table and Chair - finally done

So, about a week ago I posted a before and between of a writing table and it's chair.  I finally finished it, but, again...I forgot to take a photo of the after while I still had it because I was so exited to deliver it to the customer who bought it, even before actually seeing it in person, they had only seen it via photo, well he was kind enough to send me photos.  I stripped and re-stain the top dark, per my customer's request, and  re-upholstered the chair with her choice of fabric.  Both pieces have been waxed to protect the paint, the top of the table has five coats of poly since it will be used as both, vanity desk and writing desk.  The color is a custom color, combining white with a few drops of green, very light color.  I love this table and the chair, I think they came out great.

Here is a reminder of the before...
