Gold Dipped Barstools

We have been in some serious need of barstools for the kitchen/dining room ever since we moved in. While the main living are is quite open, the kitchen is very narrow and is not made to hold multiple people. Things can get a tight quickly when we have people over, especially when cooking.

That’s right. STAY PUT. We can still chat, but oh for the love of God please don’t come over the counter threshold. That is, unless you want me to throw spaghetti sauce all over you by accident when we bump into each other.

Last Saturday I made the weekly trek to Target and Michaels. While there I and picked out some simple $15 wooden barstools and Artist Loft Craft paint in Turquoise and Metallic Bronze .

After some serious sanding to remove the clear varnish, a couple layers of acrylic paint, and a final clear topcoat, VOILA! Gold dipped barstools. The perfect place for my guests to plop down while I am in the kitchen. Or, as a new place to hide dog toys. Thanks Reagan.
Thank you to for the inspiration.
