My Fair Ladies
April 29, 2009
Today I searched high and low for a barstool solution for my kitchen peninsula. Here’s what I found at Pier One:
I found these for $99 each:
And turned them into these fair ladies:
I wasn’t satisfied with the plain wood top, and I didn’t like any of Pier One’s cushions, so off to the fabric store I went to make cushions for comfort.
I cut some foam, and used an old T-shirt for batting:
Then I stapled my new fabric to the seat:
Then I reattached the seats to the counter stools for a custom look.
The paint color on the wall is a dijon yellow and the center island is a complementary shade of butternut. Right now, there are touches of red throughout the kitchen so this fabric works very nicely.
A custom look at an affordable price!
