For the Decorating Dilemmas party, I showed y'all my kitchen barstools and asked if you thought I should paint them. A number of people gave me advice (thank you!), and your thoughts were that I should go for it! Black was far and away the color choice suggested. The Dilemmas party was just what I needed to get me going on this project. I'd hemmed and hawed for years, wondering what I should do with these stools. Now my mind is most definitely made up.
So what progress have I made? Well, I'm sad to say that I haven't gotten the stools painted yet. I'm going to spray-paint them, and the weather here just hasn't been warm enough yet for a big outside paint job. But I have found a fabric to re-cover the seats of the barstools. Check it out:
Now just imagine that stool is painted a glorious black and the seats are covered with this fabric. Do you like it?
Here's the fabric lying on one of the chairs at my table. I like the way the two fabrics work together:
So what do you think? Am I on the right track?
