These barstools were a bear! The old upholstery was incredibly hard to get off. The staples, there was a million of them, were brittle and driven deep down into a tiny crevice. The whole family took turns working on these babies- mom, dad, grandma, grandpa…. we all took turns.



Once all those darn staples were out it was easy sailing. They were painted a beautiful brown called Status Bronze from Sherwin Williams and lightly distressed to draw attention to the bamboo detail. Then we added new foam and applied the new fabric. The back was upholstered in a pretty, deep teal colored velvet. The seat was covered in a small, fun print that reminded me of cane.

The labor charges per chair for this job were $85 to paint, $12.75 to distress, and $117 for upholstery.
