After we determined where we were moving in May I was on the hunt for some tall bar stools. The thirty inch kind which I found was going to take some time. It took about five weeks and then I spotted these for $15 a piece and was thrilled that I could get what I wanted instead of paying $150 a piece. As you have noticed I RARELY purchase anything brand new. We looked at new barstools but I just couldn't bring myself to do it! The wonderful thing about taking something old and creating something new is you have something that is just yours because chances are no one is going to have a true replica.
We painted these my favorite white which is the Benjamin Moore Aura paint in the color "Frostine". With the usual distressing and recovering the seat covers this is how they cleaned up. One project we will be working on soon is putting black beadboard on the front of the bar. That is just one of the many I have on my to do list.
I already had in mind the fabric I wanted which I quickly found. I imgined a black toile to compliment the splashes of black we have in our kitchen as well as our family room. I think it matches the white paint nicely and provides a clean fresh look. I need to mention here really quickly that I am having so many problems with Blogger lately. I cannot get things to align and center. I am consistently getting additional spacing that I have not entered and just the editing of my final post is time consuming and frustrating! Is anyone else experiencing the same issues? UUgghh. Currently I cannot get my text to center. Lovely!
