Painted Bar Stools




This image shows three painted bar stools, in the foreground is a partially painted stool in Nocturne Blue with the seat painted and a painted portion almost halfway down the legs. 
In the background is a stool partially painted in the color Shadows only the seat is painted. Lastly, in the background of this image is a blurred stool with the legs partially painted in Kalahari Sunset.

Giving life to plain wooden stools is easy with a fresh coat of paint. Pops of color were added to these stools vs. painting the entire piece. The colors I chose were Nocturne Blue HDC-CL-28, Kalahari Sunset MQ1-25 and Shadows PPU25-03. These hues work great together however feel free to choose any three colors that coordinate in your kitchen. Follow the easy steps below to create this playful new look.
