They just don’t get along
Here is my weekend project. I’ve been meaning to paint these bar stools ever since, well, I painted them. They were a garage sale find, that I paid a whopping $7 a piece for. Not too bad. When I saw them I immediately knew that I was going to paint them some happy, ‘we’re at the pool’ aqua color. And I did. And I’m sorry.
The color itself isn’t so bad, but it doesn’t quite (like not at all) go with some of the other furniture pieces I have in the room. In fact they kind of clash. Ewwww.
I had every intention of painted that dark green console, a nice creamy white or maybe even black. But now I kind of like it. It has made itself a part of our
family living room and I think for now I’m going to leave it alone and I’m also just completely afraid I might ruin it. I have no problem painting cheapo garage sale finds, but really nice pieces of furniture is another story (plus this one was given to me by my aunt-I’m slightly sentimental too). I might, however, get the nerve up to re-stain the top a nice rich mocha color one day, we’ll see.
Anyway, back to the bar stools. That’s them peeking around the corner making an unsightly scene again (they’re troublemakers those two). So the question is what color? White is always a safe bet (apparently it’s the Botox of the design world) but I’ve been seeing a lot of yellow lately, and I have my fair share scattered around the kitchen and living room, so that might be fun, right? I figure if I mess it up again, I can always
throw them to curb try again. Maybe they’ll end up with a nice ‘layered’ look when I done. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears eyes.
