Emily of Elizabeth Joan Designs tells us, “These stools were a curb find. I attempted to sell them at two different garage sales and there were no takers. After our last sale, I brought them into the house and my son loved being able to sit at the counter to “help” make dinner. Their original look didn’t match anything in our home, so I opted to give them a makeover to match our dining table.”
To begin the makeover, Emily worked hard to sand off the original finish. She primed and painted the legs a bright white. She stained the bar stool seats with Minwax Special Walnut, then painted on numbers using black paint once the stain had dried. To protect the seats, Emily finished off the makeover with clear polycrylic. Don’t they look great?
