Stools To Bench: Guest

10 June 2010

Robyn at Whimages has come up with a clever way to add a seat for one more.

As I mentioned in THIS post, the other evening, I had an epiphany about the counter height stools in the kitchen that were getting a bit old and tired. If you enlarge the photo by clicking it you can see the rush seats are falling apart. In fact our little one was SO happy to see them go because she said that the falling apart rush seats gave her splinters on her little tush. Splinters in your little tush HAVE to be the WORST! PLUS the space really isn't large enough for 3 stools but we really did need a bit more room there.

Yucky and boring before -

If the stools had been a bit larger scaled I definitely would have made the space between them a tad larger. At least now we can fit one extra little tush at the island! I think eventually we'll paint the actual SEAT grey like the island to give it some definition. But in the meantime, here is the new BENCH my Dad made from 2 ratty bar stools, in about a half hour and $12.00 worth of wood! WOO HOO!

EDIT!!!: Matt came home early to take me to a Dr. Appt. and he's putting a coat of the FRENCH SILVER that's on the island on the seats right NOW! Come back later to see. OHHH I think it's pretty!
OKAY, here they are after one QUICK coat of Behr's FRENCH SILVER, on the seat which is the same color as the island. I think that's going to be the perfect touch!

Very clever approach to adding room for one more tush!  Way to be creative!
What do you think about the stools to bench?

Hmmm I do imagine it being a little hard to move the chairs around now- but if you aren't really doing that then you're okay. I do LOVE the new color though!! We have black chairs and they show everything! They really need to be redone. What did you do for paint?

That is SO cleverly done; they look really clean now and NO more tush splinters. LOL Pam @ Sallygoodin

Wonderful! The original chairs I don't like, but now it looks great ;)

What a great idea! I have a bench at my table and love that we can squeeze four skinny kids on it when there are a bunch.
