Before & After: Amy's Dressed Up Bar Stools

These simple white faux-leather bar stools were a bargain but Amy wanted to dress them up a bit. Although she was initially reluctant to jump into this project, mainly because she couldn't find any evidence that anyone else had done something similar, the results are fabulous!

Now, if you're a regular reader you know that I will try to stencil anything that doesn't move. Don't believe me? Have you seen this entryway? Or this living room wall? How about these curtains? Ok I digress. But the point is I love a good stencil project — so naturally this project is right up my alley!

Using a stencil and paint intended for use on leather, Amy created a beautiful two-color pattern on her white bar stools. The basic shape of the stools, and the fact that they were disassembled, made the stenciling a fairly quick and easy project. And the patterned bar stools make a wonderful statement in Amy's otherwise white kitchen.
