Amazingly Cheap Makeover

We have a breakfast bar in our kitchen that separates the kitchen 
from the breakfast room.  When we bought the house, the previous
owners left a counter height stool behind.  While we appreciated the
handy stool with the swivel seat, it was not my style.  The wood was
a dark walnut stain and the seat was covered in a black vinyl.

Not me at all!

But a stool is always handy in a kitchen, so I decided to give it a little
facelift to better match my country farmhouse kitchen style.  

I already had some white paint at home.  Of course I do!  What blogger
does not have a can or two of white paint around :-)  But I also wanted to
change out that black vinyl seat for something lighter and more fun.

I happened to be at Hobby Lobby and spotted a couple of kitchen towels
for sale a few weeks ago.  I want to say they were either 50% off or 60%
off, can't remember.  What  I do remember is thinking that the heavy 
woven towel might make a perfect seat cover ~ and I think it does.
The whole makeover was about $3.00.  Amazing don't you think?

So that's it for an amazingly cheap makeover.  Be sure to stop by and
see us tomorrow.  Bentley and I will be in the kitchen sharing a 
recipe that you are sure to love!  See y'all then!!

Okay Bentley ~ let's give our readers one little hint about
tomorrow's recipe ~ it has something to do with chicken :-)

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Well, I love it now! It s perfect for a farmhouse kitchen. xo Diana

  2. Love that material. Looks so cute.

  3. I still amazes me what so many of you bloggers can do with a little nothing. When they handed creative juice they forgot me.

  4. What a cute idea! I have that same towel hanging on my oven. In fact, you and I have several of the same things in the kitchen.

  5. Absolutely love it! And the splashes of red are beautiful!

  6. This is really amazing. I liked the idea so much.


  7. Perfect seat cover. Love your colors and cozy feel in the kitchen. I recently used dish towels to make café curtains....$6 for the whole thing!

  8. Great make-over and I like the idea of a swivel seat.

  9. Hi Susan,
    I love your "new" stool...the cover is perfect in your farmhouse kitchen. Nice job!
