{Drab to Fab}- Barstool Makeover

barstools-diy-1  

diy-flag-1 Take ugly bugly barstools that you got for $5 at a garage sale.

 

diy-flag-2 Tape off a set of chevrons and sand where you want to paint. I used a template I found on the Better Homes and Gardens website.
diy-flag-3 Either start painting (which I did first- see pic 4) or tape off the whole chair, as I did with the second one. Much better idea to tape and sand everything first.
diy-flag-4 Paint away! I used Tulip's black acrylic paint and a foam brush. I did 3 coats before peeling up all of the tape and I'm really satisfied with the coverage.

 

 

I still need to touch up a few spots and then lacquer them but look how pretty they're getting!
