Kitchen Counter Stools Transformed with a Little Paint

Kitchen Counter Stools Transformed with a Little Paint

Painted furniture makeovers are a very popular way to return old furniture to new usefulness or update your existing furniture.  Here I used a primer based spray paint on these metal counter stools.  It did take two cans per stool in order to completely cover the dark brown metal.  The spray paint has held up very well on these counter stools that are used daily.  These soft white painted stools now really belong in this bright kitchen scheme.

Paint and a little time and effort transform these kitchen stools

BEFORE – This dark metal stool was functional but unappealing and  boring.

Cream paint lightens the look of these once dark counter stools.  Still to come, reupholstered cushions and a little dark wax to bring out the details.

Kitchen Interior Design

A lovely seaside kitchen, designed for the cook and their guests.

This light and airy, beach side kitchen is designed with the cook in mind and their guests.  Located in a beach community guests are welcomed and expected, and this kitchen accommodates everyone.  The cook works in the galley area while guests are comfortably seated at the island and/or the counter in their comfortable swivel stools, now updated in a lovely soft white.  With vegetable prep in mind, the island is equipped with a small yet useful sink, keeping everyone busy. The island and raised counter is ideal for hors d’oeuvres and snacks and the center island is perfect for lunch for two.  This no frill kitchen with its stock cabinets and Maytag appliances never disappoints.  It has a large pantry, corner lazy susan, roll out shelves abound, stem ware rack and glass front cabinet doors. It is always nice to have the upgrades but they are not necessary if the design and layout is working as it should.  This much enjoyed kitchen is a perfect example.
