Bar stool Magic?

As I mentioned in THIS post, the other evening, I had an epiphany about the counter height stools in the kitchen that were getting a bit old and tired.  If you enlarge the photo by clicking it you can see the rush seats are falling apart. In fact our little one was SO happy to see them go because she said that the falling apart rush seats gave her splinters on her little tush. Splinters in your little tush HAVE to be the WORST!  PLUS the space really isn't large enough for 3 stools but we really did need a bit more room there.

If the stools had been a bit larger scaled I definitely would have made the space between them a tad larger. At least now we can fit one extra little tush at the island! I think eventually we'll paint the actual SEAT grey like the island to give it some definition. But in the meantime, here is the new BENCH my Dad made from 2 ratty bar stools, in about a half hour and 12.00 worth of wood! WOO HOO!


If I was going to buy new stools, I'd DEFINITELY check out this fabulous shop, Regency Shop , they have an incredible selection!

EDIT!!!: Matt came home early to take me to a Dr. Appt. and he's putting a coat of the FRENCH SILVER  that's on the island on the seats right NOW!  Come back later to see.  OHHH I think it's pretty!


Yucky  and boring before -

OKAY, here they are after one QUICK coat of Behr's FRENCH SILVER, on the seat which is the same color as the island.  I think that's going to be the perfect touch!

Here's some link parties, check 'em out!
