I've been changing these fairly ugly barstools into this:
And even though I forgot to get a "before" picture, this is the "after":
We found the fabric for the bench and decided to base all the colors on that. I'm hoping to make a throw pillow and maybe some artwork also based on that fabric, all of which makes me nervous because I have a tendency to think up cute decor in my head but I can't get my hands to do what I have envisioned in my head.
I've never painted something as big and scary as a piano before, so it took me a while to get up the nerve. To be honest, I still haven't painted around the keys because that's the most delicate of all places to paint. If you open the piano to play it, it looks very strange, but I'm getting there.
But what I really want to know is what you think? Good? Too much like an ice cream parlor? Let me know.
