Bar Stool Makeover



We had a couple of old bar stools that were looking pretty hammered.  I forgot to take a before picture but here is what they started out looking like.


only much much worse!!! I had painted them white a couple of years ago and they were pretty scratched up.

So I whipped up a couple of batches of homemade chalk paint. One in turquoise and one in a chocolate brown. I painted the top with the brown then used two lighter colors of brown to add stripes and give it some what of a wood grain look.




Then I painted the legs the turquoise and did some distressing.They look much better and I love how they turned out!

Have you tried your hand at chalk paint yet? If you haven't, you should I love the transformation it makes on my beat up furniture. So fun to turn something old and make it new again!

Have a happy week!!!! Make sure to check out the places I party at!
