Painting Project: Kitchen Stools

Last week Kimba from A Soft Place To Land show how she updated the stools for her kitchen island. Being a sucker for painted wood and numbers, I fell in love with her idea and decided I needed my own version.

Painting these two grungy stools has been on my to-do list for at least a year. I'm so glad I put it off, with Kimba's inspiration they are going to be fabulous. This is what I started with. Dark stained wood stools. Functional but not at all inspiring. (not sure why they look all crooked in the picture? Oh well they still work)

This is what they look like now. Functional and pretty. I am so pleased with how they turned out I may just have to keep them around a bit longer.

Now I just have to get the ok from dear hubby to paint the base cabinets a wonderful white and this picture would be ten times more wonderful. I'm going to ask hubby tonight - send good vibes my way girls, I may have a fight on my hands.


  1. Great job with the stools! I have an antique one that I don't use. I'd like to paint it and use it as a plant stand or something. Maybe I'll have to give it a try!


  2. Wow! They turned out great!!!!

  3. They are wonderful. Great job! Hope you get to paint your cabinet. Mimi ps Your garden is beautiful.

  4. Love it Robin! Dear Hubby, please give sweet wife the okay.

    White paint really would look better.

    Happy Monday!
