IKEA Stools: Recovered

We acquired these IKEA stools rather oddly. A friend from high school was trying to sell them before she moved. She posted some photos on Facebook and since I've been coveting these stools for ages I had to figure out a way to get them from Riverside, CA to the LV. My friend's parents picked them up from her place, took them back to our hometown, my parents picked them up from them and then brought them to Vegas on a trip up north.
They are the perfect fit for the space and have a back to them which was a Sir Luke requirement. My kitchen is all red and white and teal and my living space has no red and adds in lime green. Suffice it to say the spaces don't blend super well. I found this great Amy Butler fabric and knew it would be the perfect way to tie them both together.

Ripley likes to approve all fabric for sleeping before she allows me to make use of it. This got an A+!


So here are the chairs post makeover! What do you think of the before and after?

I "fussy cut" the fabric so that I had the main graphic ended up on centered on the back front and seat of the chair. You have to get about twice as much fabric to do something like this. We'll see if I have enough to do this on the third stool I hope to someday own.


What do you think? Success?

O Megan, I love what you did with my old stools. Those look absolutely fabulous. They are so lucky to get a makeover and have a new home with you, Luke and your adorable puppy.
