Pinterest Project : Painted Teal Barstools

Happy Monday!

This was the project I was the most excited about after buying our home. I saw this barstool project from YoungHouseLove on Pinterest ages ago and when we bought our home, I knew I wanted bright turquoise stools in my kitchen. This isn’t going to be much of a tutorial because I totally just followed their instructions and these stools turned out AMAZING! I will show you what phone pictures I snagged of the process.


Kurts mom was so generous and gifted these stools to us. We purchased them from School Outfitters.

I sanded down, de glossed and primed the chairs per the tutorial and then I started to paint them with Tropical Oasis by Valspar. It was supposed to rain for the next week, so I did the priming and painting in the garage. We kept the doors open when possible to let out the fumes, and left a fan in there to circulate the air. We still have blue dust over everything!


I’d still say it is worth it though. These stools are beautiful. I love sitting with my bowl of cereal in the morning with the light streaming through the slider door.
