Barstool Makeover

I have been really motivated lately to get things done! That is one thing I love about a new year, it seems to put a fire under me to get going! Everything I have touched has been organized. I went to get a glass the other day and the next thing I know, I have a bag of plastic cups to donate and an organized cabinet. I did the same thing to my night stand drawer last night when I went to get a book out of it.

The other night, I decided to paint my new bar stool. It was a flea market find for $10. I love sitting in the kitchen while things are cooking so I can keep an eye on things. I have a stool that I painted green a while back that has been working just fine up until I found this one.

When I saw this one at the flea market, I was so excited about the thought of a stool with a back! It was white when I bought it which would've worked but it was very dirty and chipped. Here is the before shot of it...

I decided to paint it a very light shade of gray with a blue tint. It is so light that it could be mistaken for white. Which is fine with me.

I am really loving this new addition to our kitchen, I even sat on it at the island while I ate my lunch today.
