black and white counter stool makeover
Hope you guys had a great weekend. My little one had her first dance on Saturday. It’s bittersweet to see her get ready with her friends and drive them to the dance. I’m happy to still be welcomed at her dance and not have her push me out of the door. She’s still more comfortable with knowing that I’m right there should she need me.
Her and I are also working on her Halloween costume again. And just like the other years before we are using a plain cotton dress shirt to help her with her sensory issues regarding clothing. I’m hoping I can share that with you soon.
So today I want to show you another quick change I made to our kitchen. The minute I hung up the new wood bead pendant I made (click HERE if you missed the tutorial), I knew I had to finally change the kitchen stools. I’ve been talking about this for months now on Instagram. So a simple black change was the perfect change. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the turquoise I had in the kitchen but when I’ve lived with something for a while and have taken so many photos of it for the blog, I tend to really get tired of it and in this post I can show you what a simple little change can do to your home.
There is no need to do a big overhaul sometimes. I’ve always wanted highend stools but they are mostly a larger size, at least the ones I have found, and then I can’t fit 5 kids at the counter. And you simply can’t beat the price of these simple wooden chairs (click HERE). You can find my original tutorial by clicking HERE by the way and I’m not going to revisit every single step in this post. You can just check out the old one.

Such a simple and cheap update that has a big impact and satisfies my need for change 😉
The kitchen now fits in better with the rest of the house again, don’t you think so?
i can’t believe how much more i love this! it’s a simple change with dramatic effect that feels so much more you and a touch scandi!
And I’m happy that I didn’t need an entire overhaul to totally make me love the space again.
Love the black, such a simple change and yet such a dramatic change.
Thanks Marty, I’m glad it was simple 😉
Love the addition of black on the stools. It completes the look!
Thank you Patty, I love when a solution is so simple and cheap and makes me love my space again.
Your barstools inspired painting my plain jane stools over two years ago. They look great updated to your new black and white scheme. You are clearly having a black and white stage in your life right now. But I think you are missing one thing that would enhance your black and white house….. a new tuxedo kitty….
Well first of all thanks for sticking with me for so long. You don’t even know how much I appreciate it. And your comment made me chuckle and also brake out in cold sweats LOL because this one stray in our neighborhood had lots of black and white babies and I’m scared of the wintertime and what will happen. #spayandneuter
Love it. Only in my dreams could I have a white anything.
Haha Melony. The white isn’t that bad with the power of a magic eraser 😉 And thanks so much.
How do you keep it all so clean? What cleaner do you use? I have painted white cabinets and the are a nightmare to keep clean.
My house is 60 years old though, but I had the cabinets repainted 4-5 years ago.
I’ve had this white kitchen for 16.5 years now and it wasn’t all that bad. My best friend is a magic eraser. However it’s starting to crumble in some spots now where I stripped and repainted some doors and drawers. Magic erasers are like tiny little fine pieces of sandpaper and eventually take paint off which means I have to repaint. Such a bummer.
WOW!!!! What a difference! I loved the stools before but so much more with the black! Great idea and execution! Love everything you do!
You are always the absolute sweetest Kathleen and thanks so so much
Hello stranger!! Ich liebe die schwarzen Akzenten. xo
Oh wow you are still around Amy! Wie get es Dir?
Ich bin sehr gut und sehr beschäftigt. Wir zogen nach Florida im August letzten Jahres. We will have to catch up sometime.
Oh Florida, how awesome
I am a HUGE fam of the “less is more” approach, and this is exactly why! I love the simple, yet profound changes here. Thanks for sharing!
Well thanks so much Angela
The black looks great. Such a small but impactful change.
Love the new change – it feels so much more like you!
It does! Love when that happens and thanks
You can call it a friendship! Amazing change, looking so bright and clean. Love minimal!
Thanks so much
simple changes for the win! I loved the stools how they were, but I think the new look is a better fit with the other changes you’ve made 🙂
Small changes but big on style! Love!
Thanks so much Darnetha
Love, love the black! They really pop now.
I’m a fan of simplicity so your kitchen is really a kitchen goal for me. Looking forward to your other home tour post! xo
