A Pop Of Color, Whereupon To Perch

Some spare bar stools were purchased from you guessed it, the Facebook market place ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Though officially our kitchen island only fits four, weโ€™ve had one extra person/mini person sit on each end during visits, so we needed the extra bum rests๐Ÿ˜œ

This specific makeover took an oddly long span of time for me to actually get at and tackle but Iโ€™m so pleased with the results ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ› 

They got a good scrubbing, then a light sanding and coat of primer.

Paint chips were then gathered using this photo as inspiration.


Paint sample pots were then bought at Home Depot for around $5.00 a pot.
I used hardly any of the paint, even after two some coats of paint per stool.

So, I have to think up some new project for the remaining paint because I absolutely adore these colors ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป



Speaking of our kitchen island, itโ€™s held up well, up till a few days ago.

One edge has just recently begun to crack… and quite aggressively.
Meaning the hubs is called back for some warranty work ๐Ÿคช

Though it has now cracked and will need replacing probably sooner than later, it was completed in April 2018 and lasted until August 2019… not bad for a project costing around $80.00 and adding a custom aspect to our space.
Plus, now that Michs made one, he can hopefully iron out some kinks in the making of the next one๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

So, hopefully it doesnโ€™t fall apart on one of our toes until it gets fixed but until that time, the stools are looking fine ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
