Hey all! Welcome to Trashtastic Tuesday! This is a little series around here where I show you something that I thrifted, sometimes I make it over, sometimes I don’t. Or it may be something that I have owned and I am tired of, or no longer like, so I make it over. But nevertheless, it is usually something that I paid very little money for. My project for today is a trashtastic bar stool makeover. They go with my kitchen island, which was in the house when we moved here. Back in April, I gave the island a phase one makeover by painting it white, and removing some cabinet doors to make open shelving. At the time, the weather was not cooperating for me to be outside spray painting, so I put off painting these bar stools. All of June and half of July was rain, rain, rain around here, so I wasn’t able to do much spray painting until we were back from vacation in July, bummer. But I was finally able to get these bar stools finished, so all is well that ends well!
Here is another view of the island, but you can see the whole post about the painted island by clicking here. The counter behind the island is really not styled for blog pictures right now. I don’t always keep our smoothie maker sitting out, but we happened to have made smoothies recently and I hadn’t put it away yet. Also, I usually remove the bamboo dish drainer for pictures, but just didn’t have the energy on that particular day. But in the spirit of keeping it real, the bamboo drainer is always out, except when we are having company or taking pictures, so that is how it usually looks. I have never understood how people live without dish drainers. Not everything can be washed in the dishwasher, and where do those people put there dished? Do they just dry them and immediately put them away? If so, they are better than I am for sure.
