This mid century modern slatted bar stool makeover with a completely new look using paint and napkins!
Woohoo, it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! And today my friends and I are sharing our latest “trashy” makeover with you all. I have a fun one today, something I picked up while we were in the Outer Banks at our beach place this past weekend.
Today is also my Dad’s birthday. He would’ve been 89 today. Even though I still struggle with him being gone, I am doing better.
As I know from losing my Mom almost 10 years ago, it takes time. Ups and downs, sadness and smiles, remembering our lives and experiences in the past. I know that I will have both for a long while. Happy Heavenly birthday, Dad!! I love you!

Solid wood and in great shape. I snagged this one!
Then I was stumped! haha! I wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do. I knew I didn’t want to just paint it white. Boring! ;)
Well, maybe not but I just wanted to give it a little something more. Know what I mean??
So I went digging in my stash and found these napkins I used on another project some time ago.
I thought I could do something with this.
So I played around with placement and decided on this…
I cut out the flowers/leaves and then applied them using our Decoupage & Transfer Gel.
One napkin was not long enough to go the whole length so I cut another piece to add to the end …
I did the same thing on the bottom seat area …
Once that was very dry I came back with my exacto knife and cut in between the slats.
Where I wasn’t able to cut well, I use a piece of fine sandpaper to “sand” gently off the excess.
A coat or two of Tough Coat topcoat to protect it and done!
I’m really pleased with it!
I love how you can use simple ole napkins to create such pretty things like this.
Isn’t that fun??
A whole new and completely different look for this one!
Have you tried napkin decoupage before??
Here’s a few other projects I’ve done with napkins:
- Flower Box (with this same napkin)
- Flower Keepsake Box
- Wood & Metal Tray
- Pumpkin Sign
- Santa Sign Box
