Hello beautiful friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Wow, the weather has been amazing around here. It surely does not feel like November. (and I am surely not complaining! lol…I love it!)

We have spent every weekend (7 in a row so far) working on our beach condo though so haven’t really been able to enjoy it too much. Except for having open doors and windows. That’s been so nice especially with the dust & mess.
If you missed the latest on that, we are finally revealing the new flooring we are putting in. (it’s real hardwood AND it’s waterPROOF!) You can read all about it here >>> Waterproof Hardwood Flooring Update

Today I’m sharing the very last piece in this haul…

Bar Stool Makeover

Here is how they started…

They are solid wood and were only $8 each.

But they were pretty beat up. So I sanded them all very well before I began painting them.

Then I wiped them down well and sprayed a coat of primer on first.
Then I sprayed about 2-3 coats of white spray paint to finish.

Then I recovered the seats with this gorgeous fabric I found in the discount bin at JoAnn’s. (I bought extra because I couldn’t help myself…it’s so pretty!)

I just love the new, crisp white and that pretty blue and white fabric.

What a difference, huh?

Hard to beat for $8 each and discount fabric.

It’s a very nice, thick fabric too.

You might’ve seen me post about it on Instagram the day I found it…and how I suddenly couldn’t help seeing faces in the fabric.
Can you see them?? lol

  1. You thrifty girl you. Don’t you love looking throught the fabric remnants? I’m curious if you’ll coat the rungs with gator hide or something that will protect them. If not they might get pretty beat up from feet resting on them. If so what would you suggest? Are these headed to the condo? They would look so cute there. See you on Thursday.

    1. Oh my, yes, I do! Always find the best things there. Actually, I was just thinking about that this morning as I moved the chairs around. I might give them a spray coat of probably the matte Chalked finish or something similar to help protect the paint. And no, I do want some bar stools there, probably 2, but they will need to be skinny without chair backs as the space is limited. And yes, don’t forget to check in for the giveaways…so excited! See you then, Kathy! :) xo

  2. Love the white bar stools and the blue and white fabric is a great combination. I love blue and white in any combination! So pretty. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Oh me too, Sue!! I think blue and white are always stunning together. And that fabric I just adore. (already trying to figure out what else I can use it on!!) xoxo

  3. Beautiful fabric, Nancy (I don’t see faces!) and great deal on the stools. Definitely a fresh look for the kitchen.

  4. Great save!!!! Great price too!!! You find the best stuff and at a great prices. The house is coming along good too….keep up the good work!!!!

  5. Love, love, love the fabric with the new white chairs! I’m always checking for fabrics in the thrift shops – curtains, sheets, tablecloths, etc. We don’t have fabric shops in town.
    Nice work Nancy!

  6. These are great! You did such a professional job. I know how difficult it is to tackle a group of items. Your hard work paid off and I love the fabric!

    1. Thank you, Cecilia! Chairs are notoriously the worst!! And you are right, I had 4 to do but I am so happy with the outcome!! xoxo

  7. Beautiful job ! Just curious , why did you spray paint them rather then use chalk paint ?
    Faster ? I have a small diningroom table and chairs and now should I spray paint them too ??

    1. Thank you, Lynn!! Well…I thought it would be faster but it really wasn’t. I like to paint chairs with spray paint because it typically is faster but these were taller and had all those back rails so it took longer. If I had to do it over, I would have just went ahead and pulled my paint sprayer out and done it that way with chalk paint. You could go either way with yours. No matter which I end up choosing, paint sprayer or spray paint is always my choice over brush painting chairs. xo

      1. Thank you for your information.. one more… what spray paint did you use ? Rustoleum?
        gloss , flat ? thank you :}

        1. Hi Lynn! I used Satin. I used Rustoleum but I have all of the products I used linked in the text of the post (highlighted blue words). I usually put the links in a gray box but when it’s just one or two I’ll put them in the text of the post instead. :) xo
