Bar Stools – Before/After

My lovely friend Courtney of Fancy Pants ever-so-kindly handed off these little doozies to me last summer.

And I finally figured out what to do with them.

Shizzzzam! Semi-gloss black. Twine-wrapped accents.

…..Aaaand SOLD.

This little potater has been so busy livin’ the corporate worker bee lifestyle and soaking up Special-Man-Friend-Time before he runs all over the country extinguishing fires – that she’s neglected her ol’ home suite home. Apparently, if you don’t update your blog with content, it doesn’t get updated.

Who knew.

But as fire season commences, so does my ample idle time – and it’s a good thing because I’ve got ideas oozing from my pores.  Yeah. That’s right. Oozing.

Toothpaste For Dinner.

And there’s no motivator like a Suite Potato sale! This little guy went home to a new family this week and we’ve got to begin restoring a new piece to occupy its space! Oh, the possibilities!

So watch this space. For realsies. Watch it.

And one for the creative kiddie suite potater tots….

Here we have the bleached oak glass table painted a satin pastel lime green.

I then coated the glass insert with black chalk spray paint (purchased from Home Depot).

The trick here is to generously coat the glass with the paint – let try – and apply again in 1 hour. This will ensure that the chalk will not scratch through to the glass surface.

Then I spiced it up with some hot kid-friendly white spots.

Now, in order to prime the chalk board, you MUST smear the entire surface with chalk and then wipe clean with a damp towel. This will prevent chalk scratches from remaining permanently ghosted into the surface.

After removal — doodle to your hearts desire!

And now a before/after recap:

This is a particularly good table for children because of its rounded edges. And it’s freakin’ gosh-darn adorable.

Buy it off the Craigslist posting here!

Anyone who’s anyone knows that Peacock Chairs are all the rage.

I keep seeing these little pieces of eye candy all over design blogs and design magazines. Is it the throwback nature of wicker paired with more modern silhouettes in a seating gathering? Or perhaps it’s the inherent feeling of  undeniable importance  one feels when casually leaning against what can only be appropriately compared to a royal throne. Either way, Peacock Chairs are attracting tired bottoms like its the height of mating season. Get it? Because Peacocks use their feathers to attract their mates. Man, I slay myself. Guffaw, guffaw.

You get the idea? Good. Are your loins burning with anticipation of my own version of this devine trend? Stop it, I’m blushing.

Here we spot the elusive Peacock cowering in the shade of the sidewalk in front of a used furniture store. Sturdy condition, perfectly woven wicker still intact. Oh, the potential!

After much brainstorming, I have concluded that a radiant red will suit this piece just fine. Perhaps I will finish it with a bronze base. And I am overstimulated with possible circular cushion patterns! Floral? Zebra? BOTH?!

Washed, prepped and ready for luuuuuuuurrrve.

Now that’s a snappy lookin’ red if I’ve ever seen one.

Now let’s jazz up the base.

OOooh yeah. Good and jazzy. I like where we’re going with this. Think about how good this will look sans masking tape.

Now I’ve got to find myself a circular cushion and decide on some eye-popping patterns and transform this ugly duckling into the cockiest Peak’ that ever lived.

So watch this space. It’s about to get crazy.
