To Paint or Not To Paint

PAINTING OLD AND ANTIQUE FURNITURE should you or shouldn't you?

Painted furniture is hot right now. But personally I am not a fan of painted furniture unless it is a piece in total distress and beyond refinishing.  I am not a snob, if someone chooses to paint I can appreciate them rescuing an orphan and finding it a new home and new purpose.
Victorian Side Chairs Before
 Is it really a sin to paint a pair of Victorian side chairs that you find abandoned at a thrift store, I don't think so.  If someone can put new life into them by adding a bit of paint and fabric, is it wrong?  Would it have been so bad to leave the wood? What do you think?
