Recovering Kitchen Stools

I've got two trusty garage sale stools with the drab green seat coverings.
Just why did I live with them this way for soooooo long???

How hard can this be - really.

I was calling Cindy at this point saying...do I take off the old before adding the new?

Rather lovely lines to this stool I think.
So neutral I can do anything with it.

Checking on positioning here.
I really, really like these tea towels from Cost Plus.

Calling KMS asking how to reload more staples.
Come on, I've reloaded many staplers; can this be any harder.
Guess it was . . . but wasn't in the end.
Feeling silly.

Ta Da!!!
I don't know if there are "rules" that say the designs should match
but my tea towels didn't allow a match and
I wouldn't have wanted a match anyway.
So happy.
So grateful.
Thanks for letting me share.
I haven't outgrown my kindergarten stage love of
**show and tell**.
Happy day, msk

I need to come see your "new" house! The cabinets look great (I want to paint mine too), the shutters are darling and the chairs are gorgeous.

I've been thinking about these all day since seeing them in real life this morning. They are beautiful! I love the fabric you chose.

Thanks for the garden visit this morning. We both loved it. Jane's brought it up several times. At the end, I said, "I love Sister Knight." She sighed and said, "Me too."
