I've been keeping busy getting some projects done.I bought three old retro bar stools at the thrift shop a few months ago. They were $10.00 each, but were In need of some serious work!! I finally got around to start working on them. I think they were from the 1950's with the vinyl seat covers.
I used dropcloth to make the slips. I think they have the retro chic look now!! They fit just right under the counter. I love that they swivel too.
This Is what I started with! First thing my husband did for me was to cut four Inches off the legs. Now they fit comfortably under the counter.
We had one nice day last week so I was able to spray them In the
garage. I sprayed them rust-oleum metallic bronze. Then It was time to make the slips. Instead of going crazy trying to get the vinyl off I left It on, and just made slips that slip right over the outdated vinyl. The piping adds a finished look to them.
Right now I started another project. Roman shades for my window above the sink!! I'm still having trouble uploading! So, I'm sorry If my writing Is all over the place.
I have been married for 46
years. We have one wonderful daughter who lives in New York. I'm retired and it's wonderful to stay home and have more time to do the things i love. My favorite things are going treasure hunting at thrift shops, estate sales, garage sales. I love looking for old treasures, and bringing them back to life.
