Yard Sale Find & A Makeover

Finally, I have somewhat of a crafty post for you! Gosh, I feel like it's been forever since I've done anything creative. So, way back at the beginning of July we were out and about and came across a yard sale and spotted these chairs. We just had to hop out of the car and inquire about them. They were originally $15 a chair, but we easily talked them down to $15 for all three. What a bargain!!!

My husband and I got to sanding, sanding and more sanding. Then with the magic of some Rustoleum Heirloom White Spray paint, we came up with this...

Aren't they cute?! Just goes to show, with a little work and some spray paint you can make things look totally different. I love how these turned out. They fit absolutely perfect in our new kitchen. My boys love sitting on them for Breakfast and Lunch.

Here is a little peek at the kitchen. I'll soon give you a tour and some Before and After photos of our new place. It's really starting to feel like home.

  1. I these Tanya!! They look very pottery barnish but better and with a better price too! :)

  2. WOW! this is a true testament to what a difference some white paint can make. they are so pretty now!

  3. Hi, They turned out so beautiful. I found two chairs like yours, they are exactly in white and cost me $5 each two years ago. I take them to home, sanded a little bit and give them a coat of stain. Mine looks awesome too (LOL) and I love it.

  4. Great find! and you did a wonderful job on them. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your boys are just adorable!

  5. Your stools look fabulous, a lot like mine actually! I love them.
    Hugs, Cindy
