Retro Bar Stools Makeover

If you've been reading my blog you'll know that I'm supposed to be working on Emma's room and the entry. I feel a little naughty, but I've taken a de-tour and finished these.

I bought these on e-Bay a little while ago. Actually, a long while ago, but anyway! I had some spray undercoat left over from my hall table and mirror, so I jumped right on it and sprayed those things!

I love the lines; they're so retro! The fabric was something I had left over from my little stool project and given I love the colour I thought it would be perfect for these chairs. And check out those little blue feet!

But the best bit... five minutes of peace with a magazine, a biscuit (or two) and a hot chocolate...

Now I'll go back to my 2012 home goals... hopefully... all though, I was thinking about painting our dining room table...
