A Bit of Color in the Kitchen - Mini Makeover

Our kitchen is  pretty neutral and I like it that way. I wasn't ready to commit to anything dramatic in the kitchen but I knew I didn't want all white. I LOVE the look of all-white kitchens but that is too much pressure for me. I am too messy.

 I am always on the search for the perfect stools. These stools were nice but didn't add much to our decor. I needed a bit of whimsy and color.

I recently came across some new stools at the flea market. They needed to be reupholstered and that is a quick and easy fix. These will probably not be my "forever" stools but I really enjoy the pop of color and fabric.

I purchased these stools in a group of 4. I needed 2 and will be taking the other 2 to the Na-Da Farms sale with me in May. Not sure how to recover the other 2 yet. I can see a trip to the fabric store in the near future. 

Thanks for checking in!
