Retro Chic Bar Stools
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.
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 Instead of going crazy trying to get the vinyl off I left It on, and just made slips that slip right over the outdated vinyl.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.
Have a great day!!
