~DI Finds~

I found a set of disgusting looking, ratty -tatty, old, bar stools. I have two fold up barstools, but have been wanting something more permanent. I have seen other barstools at the DI marked at around $7.00 so I kind of assumed they would be about the same. I decided to ask anyways, since they were unmarked, and I was glad I did!! The guy marked them $1.50 each! SWEEEEET!!

I just painted them a high gloss black and applied a polyurethane coat. I am so excited! Hopefully they stay scuffed free for a little while! Yeah right huh?

Ooways painting things with high gloss . . . they'reprobably asking you to show ID from all the Krylon products you buy. I hope those paint fumes aren't making you high, Boogs. :)

I love a good D.I. find.

I am glad the spray paint worked out! The best part about the spray painting is it is sooo easy to fix scuff marks! I bet the poly coat will prevent that though!! They look great!
