So Friday, it occurred to me, "Duh, check craig's list!" Within two minutes, I'd found the exact stools I was looking for.
A sweet old lady was selling four stools for $45. I only needed three, so I emailed her to see if I could buy three for $30. To my surprise, she said YES, so I rushed to her house to pick them up!
My plan was to strip off the old cushions, repaint the stools and reupholster the seats. Easy enough, right?
I had never reupholstered anything but Adam had, and I found a great tutorial on pinterest.
this tutorial step-by-step, and it was right on the money. Highly recommend it!
Once I FINALLY got the old cushioning removed, I sanded the stools a little and then painted them with the white paint I had left over from painting the kitchen.
The easiest part was the actual reupholstering part. I enlisted the help of Adam, followed the tutorial step-by-step and knocked it out in no time.
So what do you think?
I wanted fun, bright colors/fabric, and these fit the bill perfectly!
I just LOVE them! They are exactly what I envisioned!
After a $45 trip to JoAnn's for supplies (fabric, batting, foam and scotch-gard) and purchasing the stools for $30 on craig's list, my grand total was $75. I'd say $25 a stool is pretty darn good!
