These classy bar stools were refinished by Karen from Somewhat Quirky Design with Liquorice to fit in with her friend's newly renovated kitchen!
Hello! It's Karen from Somewhat Quirky Design.
Recently a close friend of mine had her kitchen redone. I'm still trying overcome my jealousy.
We are still finding ways to christen it. Christening number three was Easter brunch.
Easter brunch was served on their new bar. A bar that required new bar stools.
And when you've just dished out a jillion dollars for a kitchen and dining remodel, new bar stools may not be in the budget.
But being the supportive friend that I am I offered to do a little update on the second-hand bar stools she procured as well as the much loved "cat stool" that provides a spot for which-ever of 4 cats claims possession first.
The chairs were painted up in Country Chic Liquorice. It's a true black, but maybe a kinder, gentler black.
For the fabric we dug out some fabric from a previous project I did for her.
I think they're pretty dang great.
They also received the cat housekeeping seal of approval.
Snixxle said "They are so beautiful I'm almost distracted from this lovely candied bacon!"
Pippa said "I love the lovely glow of the wax finish!"
And I love having a place to sit and bask in the glow of the new kitchen - and watch someone else do the work.
That is if the cats will share with me...
Hello! I’m Karen. I blog over at Somewhat Quirky Design. I blog about things I make, things I learn, and things I do. Oh, and cake. I make cakes and then eat them. Somewhat Quirky Design should have just been Somewhat Quirky, but somehow, someone, got that name before me! So I try to throw a thing or 10 about design onto the blog just to keep me honest.
I would love for you to come eat cake with me. Or paint. Or grow hydrangeas and peonies. I’ll share my power tools with you!
Seriously, I love my home and garden. I think I was born just to make stuff. Blogging gives me a chance to meet and befriend people who just might understand that!
