Hello everyone! How was your long weekend? I sort of unplugged a little bit while we worked and worked in our backyard! That is a post that will be coming up soon – we still have a bunch of work to do back there but we are getting so close to adding sod – I think we may even have a “sod date” and that makes me smile from ear to ear – which is a good thing because after raking and raking I feel like crying hurt and hurt from head to toes! haha.
I do have a fun little project to share with you today! A little while ago I shared with you some red kitchen bar stools I had refinished when my kitchen/dining room was a different color - but I have since painted and stenciled and changed colors – and so it goes – that the bar stools get another makeover as well!!
I used Martha Stewart’s paint “Rainwater” – the same color that I used on the painted wooden valance and gave them a nice thick coat! Of course I did primed them first! I then used my Silhouette and cut out some fun numbers in white vinyl and applied them to the top. I used Rustoleum Clear Matte and gave them a top coat.
I love the way they turned out and they look wonderful in my kitchen – this was such a fun way to incorporate a fun color!
My husband was sort of dreading the number thing because he thought I would be all crazy about keeping them in order and freak out if they were out ever out of number – but I think I have impressed him because they usually stay in order and if they are out – it isn’t a big deal. I do however, always put them back in order whenever I sweep and mop.
What fun things have you done with your bar stools? I would love to see!
