Bar Stools / August 7, 2018 / Lexie Paul
Before You Go
One of the most popular retro kitchen chair designs is a simple chair with metal legs and a vinyl seat and back. Within this style alone there is a wide range of variations. You can choose either brushed, polished or painted metal, and pick from a rainbow of colors for the cushion and back. You can find cushions in solids or in prints that include flowers, stripes or geometric shapes. The shape of the seat cushion and back can vary. You can also find this style of chair made of wood; these chairs often have wooden backs as well and just a seat cushion.
Wooden bar stools are fairly easy to paint. Consider whether you want your bar stools to blend in with the rest of your kitchen's decor or give the room a color pop. You can paint them in a solid color, or paint the legs or base one color and the seat another shade. If you want to get really creative, use the bar stool as your canvas and incorporate a unique pattern or design. If your style is more rustic, country or shabby chic, you can go with a distressed look. Or let the beauty of the wood grain show through a stain or color wash.
