Ok, so my Mom thinks I've lost it!  I've had this HUGE antique dining room table and chairs for a few years and it has limited me to what I can put in the area -- so I dismantled!  Put in a smaller table and the chairs were beyond keeping together much anymore, so I repurposed!  That's what I would have done if I'd found them on the street I told her!  I sanded down a little, added some cherry stain, put on misc hardware for character and hung a picture from it.  The way the chair back is curved adds great dimension to the wall.  I have one for each grandchild haning on either side of the fireplace.  The chairs have never looked better!

Happy junking,
