All of our grandchildren had fun, hunting eggs. (Carly, Cooper, Brayden, Gavin, Madison, and Bradleigh).
I told my husband he has permission to hit me over the head if I ever again even think about buying anything with Micro suede on it! We've had these counter-height stools for about ten years. It didn't take long for the micro suede to look horrible. I should be ashamed to show you how dirty these seats look. I don't think our bottoms are THAT dirty! I don't understand why the seats look so bad.
I tried all of the cleaning tricks I could find on Pinterest, and sometimes they looked better for awhile. For the past couple of years, I've covered them with square cushions on top of the round seats. The cushions are now looking bad.
So, this morning, instead of cleaning up the Easter mess, I decided to paint the seat cushions. I started out with a tiny brush on the welting and to get into some of the wrinkled areas. If I got a little paint on the wood, I used a wet cloth over a knife, to wipe it from tiny areas around the welting.
I dampened each section of the top of the cushion before painting it with a larger brush. Annie Sloan paint dries so quickly that, within an hour I was putting a second coat on the top of the cushions.
Don't you think it looks better? Maybe it will last until I'm able to afford to hire a professional to reupholster it.
Thank you for visiting. I'm off to paint the other bar stool seat now.
