As I write today, I’m listening to Jennifer Hudson wail “Whatever Makes You Happy” from the soundtrack of the wildly popular television series, Empire. And what makes me happy is that now I can belly up to new bar stools this fall. Small changes make for big impact in our homes as you and I prepare to spend time indoors during cooler weather.
So I finally attacked my pitiful bar stools at our bar and kitchen counters in preparation for holiday entertaining. Stools of substance can cost upwards of $800 to$1500. That’s why I elected to have my favorite upholsterer not only recover the seats of the ones shown above, but also perform some much needed surgery on the legs and braces of a couple of them.
As you can see, they are more than ready for the next person who will belly up to the bar. And when we tiptoe from the fridge to the counter in the kitchen, we can perch on my favorite newly designed kitchen barstools. Before the remake, though similar in color, they didn’t really match.
It was so much fun to mix the geometric fabrics from Maxwell with the linen-like fabrics from Fabricut. The nail heads elevate the chairs to the casual elegance that I enjoy. I wanted a solid fabric where stains were most likely to occur.
The fall makeover is just beginning. Stay tuned for more fall updates at my home. If you would like help with redoing things around your home for the holidays, contact me about One Day Re-Design. Details about this new service offering can be found here.
