Bar stool schnazzy-up!

I don’t think “schnazzy-up” is actually a word.  I think I made that up.  But you get it, right?  Ok, good!  Moving on…..

So we have had these perfectly good bar stools for about 5 years now.  We bought them from T.J. Maxx for a steal when we lived in our old house.  They matched our old house perfectly!  They have been sitting in our new house for over a year now and they just aren’t jivin’ with our new home’s decor.  They especially don’t match since we painted the family room/kitchen/breakfast nook a light gray color.  Here they are in all their “before” glory (or lack thereof):


Plain.  Ugly.  Brown.  Yuck.

I found some really cute fabric the other day at Jo Ann’s and decided it would be perfect to cover these stools!  I was going to paint the stools white, but it really wasn’t necessary.  The fabric matched the frame of the stools great and the frame really didn’t bother me that much.  It was the brown microsuede cushions that bothered me.  So I whipped out my staple gun and got to work!  Here’s the finished product:




Much better!

Such a simple change for such big impact!  Love it!



  1. I love those! I just redecorated and used those colors. Love that green, but I have a feeling its one of those colors that in ten years I will be like ' what was I thinking!'

  2. What a difference!! They look great!

  3. Great change... They look fantastic.
