Latest Project: Barstools Makeover

 I am so proud to showcase my latest project. Thank you Lisa for letting me do this makeover. SAhe found these barstools on Craigslist for next to nothing and had to vision to restore them. I love the ikat fabric and the color scheme.
 
BEFORE
 
We tried to salvage curtains into upholstery fabric but it wasn't strong enough to be durable. It was worth a shot but we then ended up at the fabric shop.
 
After opening the seats we had to also invest in new cushions. I recommend Foam and Fabric Outlet on Broadway in Knoxville, TN.

It took 30 minutes to remove the staples and leather from each piece and at least 30 minutes to cut, sew, and staple the new fabric.
 
The four stools consisted of 8 pieces in total making my project time 8 hours.
