Paint DIY: Metallic Dipped Bar Stools
Our kitchen was feeling a little empty since I sold our Restoration Hardware Toledo stools. I loved the look of those stools, but I didn't like the squeakiness and found them a bit hard to move around.
To replace them, I bought 4 green/oak stools off of kijiji for $10 each. After a bit of sanding, painting, taping and sealing, I had the perfect set of metallic paint dipped stools to go with my stainless steel appliances.
The hardest part was taping off the base and legs to make sure the metallic spray didn't end up on my freshly painted legs. I found the solution was cling wrap and painters tape.
Here are the necessary items you need for your own painting DIY:
1. Wooden stools, the cheapy ones found at target or walmart, or better yet, like I found second hand.
3. Drop sheets
5. Paint Brush
6. Painter's Tape
7. Cling Wrap
8. Spray Metallic Paint (I used Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel Bright Coat Metallic Gloss Chrome)
9. Paint Sealer protective finish (I used the Minwax Polycrylic sealer in gloss)
Once I sanded the stools, I painted the legs with two coats of Behr's Black paint and primer in one.
I am super happy with the final results!
