Just goes to prove that anything you own, regardless of how outdated or beat up it might be, deserves a second chance to be the talked-about trendy item in the house! I have a grab-bag of fabulous DIY B&A makeovers to post each week… and look forward to sharing them all!! For instructions on redoing your bar stools, follow the jump! The great floral fabric shown can be found at Carousel Designs.
