Here is the end result of my bar stool up cycle. Personally I'm not a huge fan of how the distressing came out on the seats, but I posted these for sale and they sold in 30 minutes so the distressing was deffinately wasn't a bad idea :-)
After sanding down the stools I painted the legs a satin black (I love this paint by the way, it's the same paint I used on my coffee table project). The Flur de lis was done in black and gold and the wood was stained with a dark wood stain. The tops were then sealed with a matte finish.
I was a little sad to see these go but also really happy they were so well received
