This is a shot of our kitchen when we were painting and before we moved in so excuse the disaster in the photo!
So here is our bar in the kitchen/dining room! After the first couple weekends in the house and quite a few guest we realized we don't have a lot of seating when it comes time to eat. So we had been thinking that this spot would be perfect for a couple of barstools . . . then we started looking at the prices of barstools! WOW, barstools are pricey!! So barstools went further down the list of "needs!"
Then Mom (Shabby Wendy) found a pub style table on Craigslist with 8 (YES EIGHT!!) barstools for the table! She put 4 around the table and 4 under her bar. And because I was nice enough to drive with her to the other side of town to pick up this deal I got to take the old barstools!
Simple saddle barstools, only problem is my kitchen/dining room is BLACK!! Like that ever stopped me from something that was FREE!!
So did a little sanding and spray painted them black. But I am in love with the black distressed look so I took out my trusty sander and did a couple touches here and there!!
Then finally I put a good coat of gloss and we now have four barstools, and only room for two. But the more the merrier, especially when its free!!
Before & After
Back to relaxing . . . have a happy weekend everyone!
