One, Two, Bar Stools!

I recently showed you a couple of bar stools in my Week 6 - Diamonds In The Rough! post that you can see HERE.

I purchased them at a garage sale for my daughter's apartment. They cleaned up good but they needed to be jazzed up. The apartment has white cabinets so I left the base of the stools white.

However, I did sand down the tops, painted them black, distressed just a tiny bit, then I still didn't think they were fun enough, so I stenciled on numbers in a creamy white on the tops.

I wiped a stain over them, sealed them and now they are ready for her to take to her apartment and put in place.
