Mel and I have been scouring the internet to find stools for our kitchen counter. We had a heck of a time finding something that was appropriate for our decor. We finally found a set of Dee Mfg. stools on eBay that we thought would look great. When they arrived the bases and cushions were separate and there was no hardware!
When these arrived they were pretty farm fresh. The cushions are in great shape with some character. The metal frames had a lot of surface rust.
The cushions are a light pink with black, gray and chartreuse accents.
Each of the stools still had the Dee Mfg. Corp. tags.
crusty and rusty but not for long…
When sanding pieces like this I like to use a foam sanding block. It allows you to get a in all those tough areas.
Here is one base done compared to one of the unrestored bases.
Here they are all painted and set out to dry. Once they dried I attached the bases and cushions with self tapping screws.
We really like the way these turned out. They are simple, but the upholstery is what makes these stools.
They look right at home in our kitchen.
