Over at Chase the Star, Barbara has been working on updating her kitchen and dining area with lighter, brighter colors. These barstools had already been through a lot when they arrived at her house (check out that scary before picture), so this was their second rescue under Barbara’s capable hands.
For makeover #2, Barbara had to decide what she did and didn’t love about these stools. The simple lines? Perfect. The Union Jack motif on the seats? Still a favorite. The dark red legs? Those had to go, since they didn’t fit in with the sunwashed, light colors Barbara is using now. Instead, she covered the read with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in “Cream”, which meant she didn’t even have to sand or prime over that red! It was a quick and easy rescue that will keep these bar stools functioning beautifully for many more years.
