IKEA bar stools spring makeover

yellow IKEA bar stools

Good morning everyone,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend, we did, it was a busy one for us; from working on our yard to attending one of my best friend’s baby shower, to celebrating Greek Easter with hubby’s family. Here in Montreal, it feels as if summer has already arrived, I’ve been sporting flip-flops and high heel sandals all weekend making sure to enjoy every second of these beautiful sunny days.  As promised, please let me share with you one of the projects I’ve tackled during these last few weeks: my two black Dalfred IKEA bar stools got a spring makeover. We have all seen many stool transformations all over Pinterest and the blogsphere and today I wanted to share mine with you.

We’ve had these two IKEA bar stools since the first week we moved into our house, they used to look good in our all white kitchen but after our main floor renovation they didn’t match our kitchen style anymore. The bar stools looked old, they had craft paint on them from my previous DIY projects and I just didn’t like them anymore.

And of course knowing me, I had to do something about it. I decided to paint them and give them a new purpose in our house.

I cleaned them up as they had accumulated dust behind our living room sofa. Sanding them was necessary before applying the paint. For this project, I used Krylon’s Dual Paint + Primer sun yellow gloss indoor-outdoor paint. For furniture, I prefer applying a primer before painting it but I wanted to give this primer and paint in one a try and see if it could do it’s job. It did but to achieve a complete and smooth finish I had to use 4 cans of spray paint. So, I think next time I will use a primer before painting furniture.Dalfred IKEA bar stools in black

As mentioned on my previous post, this was my first spray paint project of the year and I was a little rusty. First, I didn’t realize that the spray nozzle had fallen off in the cap, so when I did my first coat it left a large glop of paint on my fingers. Next, I neglected to follow the pattern of a quick motion to avoid drip marks on the stool. After a few sprays it came back to me. I can’t believe I had forgotten how to spray paint. So what was my spray painting method? I started by spray painting outside of the stools and lightly sprayed in a smooth continuous sweeping motion from left to right to create a smooth coverage with no drip marks. Hubby helped me with the rest of the spray painting because that’s when our little boy decided it was time for him to take a nap and I had no choice but to go inside with him.

spray painting and sanding IKEA bar stools

I recommend, leaving these to dry for 24 hours in a dry area where there isn’t much sun or heat. If you have a garage I recommend you working on these type of projects there. I worked in my balcony and yard because our garage is full right now. Before applying a second coat, I lightly sanded them to remove the extra paint and the drips of paint left on the legs of the stools:

I applied a second coat of paint the next day and a third coat of paint last Thursday to make sure I didn’t miss any spots and let them dry for another 24 hours outside. See that old slide behind, it’s not ours; it was our neighbor’s, they gave it to us last summer, we never used it, hubby left it outside the entire winter and now it’s rusted. Planning on getting rid of it this coming Saturday:

Next morning, I brought them back to our kitchen to see how they fit with our new style. I loved the look; they brighten up the space. After I had applied the third coat of paint, they looked almost perfect but they weren’t so I decided to try the “distress” look. Please, let me show you how:

yellow bar stools

I decided to sand the edges of the seat and of the legs to lightly distress them, I used two types of sandpaper: 150 (from Gator finishing products) to remove the paint and give it a distress look and then 400 to create a smooth surface:

It took me two days to achieve the look I was going for because I wasn’t sure how much sanding it needed. I love how they look, lightly distressing the edges was a great idea:

This is how they look in our eat-in-kitchen. I love yellow but not everyone is a fan.  Yellow is a happy color, when spring arrives I’ve always liked adding yellow accessories to my decor. Last summer, I bought 4 beautiful yellow pillows for our living room sofa, they added a pop of color.

this is a close-up picture, unfortunately, when I took these pictures there was too much light coming from the big window, so you are not able to see how the legs look after I distressed them with the sandpaper:

I love how these bar stools turned out, they look great against the dark floors. I put 2 coats of oil-based polyurethane to make sure they were well protected. The weather was so beautiful this weekend, we spent most of our days outdoors, that’s when I had this great idea; to use them outside. First, we used them in our balcony as a side table to hold drinks:

Then, I placed them in our yard and used them as plant holder stands:

I love how I can place these in any space of our house and they look great. For now, I have decided to keep them in our yard and continue using them as plant holder stands for these beautiful flowers my parents got for us this weekend:

Now, I need to go to the hardware store and get us new plant holders for these flowers and more lawn fertilizer. So many more projects left to tackle in our yard but I will write about them in another post. You might have noticed our tiny yard but that’s what you get when you live in a skinny townhouse in the city of Montreal:

I love spring and hope this beautiful weather will last!

Are you working on new projects?

Thanks again for stopping by!

    Hi Ingrid.. I have this wooden tea poy. I bought it in Kmart. Would you recommend the same procedure of painting it?

    May 7, 2013 at 2:54 am
    • now at home mom says:

      Hi Rhema, yes absolutely but I recommend for you to make sure to sand it very well at first, apply a good primer , then lightly sand it again , you could also use T.S.P. it’s a product that prepares surfaces for painting and if you choose to spray painted make sure it’s in a dry space and not too hot (no humidity) and between each coats of paint; lightly sand it to avoid any paint drips. Hope this helps Rhema with your project! 🙂

      • rhema3one7 says:

        Alright. No humidity, I get it. Thanks Ingrid. I will enquire again while buying the products.

    Hi Ingrid!

    Great project and from the moment I saw the stools I thought great for plant stand not knowing you were thinking the same. They look nice next to the pink/mauve chair, if I said the color right. Your hard work is now a great self reward. They’re beautiful! Kind regards to Nate, and I’m sure he is enjoying the outdoors. Be Blessed, Mtetar

    I LOVE them! That sun yellow is perfect! And the “distress” really adds to it, no? How great that they can be so versatile as well…from stools, to drink table, to flower pot holder in the garden! How clever you are Ingrid! Didn’t I tell you we would go from cold and blizzard-like weather to hot and 25 degrees C? I love it!!

  • Krista @thehappyhousie says:

    Ingrid, these are STUNNING!! I LOVE the yellow. Now I absolutely have to find something to use that color spray paint on… isn’t spray painting tricky? I usually make a major mess of it but lately my luck has turned a little and/or my skills are improving slightly. But I love the way you fixed them up by distressing the edges…. I think they look even better distressed! But that is more my style then glossy brand new all the way through. Seriously so cute and fun and fresh! LOVE!

    They look awesome. I actually wanted to get them before I got mine but was afraid to paint the plastic parts in the middle. Let me know how the paint holds up. They look fabulous!

    May 8, 2013 at 9:44 am
    • now at home mom says:

      Oh! thank you Julia! 🙂 when I was outside working on this, my husband kept telling me “it won’t work, it will get stuck”, I lightly spray painted the middle and waited to see; it worked, there is no motion restrictions, it didn’t become stick and they didn’t get stuck. I protected them with two coats of polyurethane; hope this will protect them from the rain! I will let you know if the paint chips or not 🙂 thanks again Julia!

    These look so great and professional! For some reason, painting them yellow makes them look more industrial than black – I would have never guessed! Perhaps it’s the gloss? I want a bar now just so I can make these bar stools. Great job!

    May 8, 2013 at 11:56 am
    • now at home mom says:

      Thank you very much! looking back at them after the distressed job, they do look more industrial! thank you so much for your lovely comment! and for stopping by! 🙂

  • motherhoodisanart says:

    Ooh…la…la!!! Love them Ingrid! They do add the perfect splash of color! I also distress everything I do because the kids always end up ruining everything I do so then I don’t feel bad since it already has a distress look to it!! They just add to it! Also, I noticed in the one picture that your pantry is still looking good (hee-hee)! I notice everything! Last week I reorganized all my food cupboards and had everything looking really good and put in it’s proper place and today it is a complete shambles again!

    May 8, 2013 at 1:47 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Thank you so much Melissa! 🙂 you make me laugh! 🙂 yes, you are right, you do notice everything! I only noticed my pantry after I copied the picture in the post! Yes, it’s still looking good! some days Nathan wants to play with all the baskets and some days he doesn’t even notice them! so don’t worry; it gets very messy here too with 1 kid, you have 3 so you have a better excuse ! 😉

  • thethingaboutjoan says:

    I love the yellow! Seems like just the right touch after all the gloomy gray days we’ve had. And the distressed edges are perfect — I really love that look!

    Thanks for the mini-review of the paint + primer too. I’m glad to know it works, but it’s helpful to me to know that I may need to buy a bit more than usual. I am the worst spray painters ever — too impatient to spray evenly, so I end up with drips everywhere! But I keep at it — practice makes perfect! 🙂

    May 8, 2013 at 3:19 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Oh! thank you Joan! 🙂 we are having amazing weather over here, I’m kinda of scare it will soon end but yes, yellow seemed perfect for these and because they didn’t look perfect; distressing them was a great decision and they warm up our kitchen too. As for spray painting: you keep doing it and then you will find your own way to do it, you will see! before blogging; I had spray painted so many things around our house and they did not always look great, then my father asked me “sand the furniture between each coat” and Voila!!! got it. By the way, I always have to go back to the store and get more paint 😉

    Wow, Ingrid! I love your bold color choice here…and of course, distressing is my favorite thing in the world, so I think you were wise to give it a more rustic look in the end (also, it’s less important that the paint job be perfect because distressed furniture is supposed to look imperfect! It’s part of its charm!). Love to hear that you were able to get back into the swing of spraypainting with this number…and I can’t wait to see what else you have been working on now that spring has finally arrived in Montreal. Hallelujah!

    May 8, 2013 at 8:50 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      Hallelujah! YES! 🙂 so glad I was able to spray paint again, the only problem is that every time I look at something around the house, I want to paint it hi!hi! 😉 Thank you Lauren, so happy that I distressed these two bar stools; like you said imperfect “it’s part of its charm” ! 🙂 Thanks again Lauren you are always so kind, can’t wait to complete another piece of furniture I’m working on and can’t wait to see your post for tomorrow! 🙂

    I love the bright yellow in the kitchen or outside. The red flowers look awesome with the yellow.

      Those red pop against the yellow! I like them there too, these last 2 days it’s being raining and went to check on the stools just to make sure the paint would last; it did! hope it will last for the summer 🙂 thanks again Crystal!
