Mismatched Pair

I've been MIA for a few days - some time away and now back to working on some projects!  I don't have a before photo of this mismatched pair but there are lots of them around, so use your imagination.  I found these two at an estate sale a couple of months ago in my favorite spot - the cellar/basement.  They are both oak, solid and no "wobbles" needed to be dealt with so I could concentrate on how to finish them.  Of course, they were missing the seats, but in the world of rehabbing furniture, that's a minor issue - right?

Since despite their differences they did have some basics in common (oak, size, seat type), I decided to finish them as a pair and I think they work well together.

This was the first time I've used a fiber seat to replace cane.  It's a quick project, though not inexpensive as I could only find them online.   I'll have to keep my eyes and ears open for an alternative.
