Gold Dipped Bar Stools

Over at Honeybear Lane, Heidi has been working on projects for her daughter’s nursery.  She’s not revealing the whole room, yet, but she thought of a fun way to incorporate these two bar stools.

Just how does one turn beat up but still useful bar stools into something feminine enough for a baby girl’s nursery?  Well, if you are Heidi, you start dipping into the paint.  Gold paint, that is!  Heidi painted the stools a luscious shade of raspberry pink, first, then dipped the legs into gold paint for a gilded effect.  She topped the seats with matching gold, as well.  Fun and elegant!
