I have been on the hunt for forever, looking for some counter height, solid wood bar stools. I wanted something super inexpensive without a back. After eagle-eyeing online ads, I picked up these three beauties for a grand total of $25!
I had visions of a two toned, distressed look and since I was going to be painting and stencilling, I really didn’t want to buy anything new (or too nice lol). Plus my husband isn’t sold on this style, so I can’t see these being our ‘forever stools’. (He’s a fan of chair backs on stools.)
So my $25 find has me so excited to start this diy, even though I’m super pregnant (um hello there 41 weeks), I have my in-laws staying with us for a bit, helping out and hanging out with M. And since this baby seems pretty content where she is, and I’m thinking a little diy is the perfect distraction for me.
Some ideas that I’m loving are…
(from high style restyle)
The black chalk paint with the pretty, stained top really stands out to me, however I already have a lot of dark wood in my kitchen, where bright & white is my love language, so I thinking a lighter paint colour with the possibly stained, distressed top?
This was another craigslist find for me. It was a super quick makeover and I love how it turned out (read about it here). This would look cute in our kitchen too, although I might do a darker grey on top, keeping it light and chippy on the bottom still?
^ cuckoo for design
I also like the fun pop of colour along the edge. Cute, right?
If you want to follow along in my insta-stories, I’ll be starting this diy today (unless I go into labour – yay!).
Have a great day!
