We inherited the brownest stools ever to be made earlier this year. However brown they were they are incredibly sturdy and made by my Grandad many decades ago so it seemed fitting to give them a little uplift whilst adding extra seating in our kitchen.
These were so simple to do I simply removed the pads from the base painted them all white. Using a pair of discounted curtains from B&Q I covered the existing seat pads securing in place with upholstery nails. They are absolutely perfect - the small size means they fit in the corner when not used neatly and discreetly but are really comfy additions for people to sit on when we have lots of people over.
