The Counter Stools Are Finished!

The bar counter stools are finished!  Here is the before, remember I had to cut them down from bar height to counter height when we removed the 2nd tier from our kitchen counters.
BEFORE

Here are the after pictures.  I painted them with Maison Blanche from Sherwin Williams.  Then sanded the edges slightly and wiped on glaze to antique them a little.




I have started painting the chairs for the kitchen table....

This project will be put on hold for the Memorial Day Weekend, we have company coming.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
Welcome Home,
Penny

Looks great, Penny! I love the 'new' stools.
I have to say, I'd like to bottle some of your energy and dip into it once or twice a season!

They do look wonderful. Glad that you showed a closer view as I couldn't tell what the fabric was in the first and wondered if you'd gone with something new. Do people sit at the counter or did they sit at the bar before? I've often wondered about such things. (My sister had a bar top and we sat at that whenever she was cooking. I did anyway. Great way to stay out of the way while someone else is doing all the work.)

Enjoy your company and have a delightful holiday weekend.

The stools are perfect, Penny. Oh, it is a pain in the you know what to paint chairs. I want to paint some, but keep putting it off. Enjoy your company and weekend.

Wow, such a difference a little white paint makes! They look so much brighter, love the lightened up seat covers too. Have fun with your guests! If it ever stops raining here I plan to do a litle cooking out and a lot of sewing:>)

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Love your stool redo! I like counter top height so much better than bar height. I love all your touches of red. I spotted a red cabinet in your dining room that looks adorable.

see you there! said...

Looking really good Penny. BTW, I think I found a work around to my comment problem.

darn...company means you have to clear away the dining table project!!!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Oh Penny, I so envy that you and your husband can team up and create such magic. As I have mentioned so many times before, I am hopeless at painting furniture...too many drips. I love what you did with your stools. Your home is a page out of a magazine.
