Homemade Bar Stools
My husband designed and built 6 of these barstools. I can't quite write well enough to explain how useful and exciting it is to have these. I described to him the exact shape, style, and height I thought would be the most useful and he put together this design. I was so amazed when I saw the first one made exactly how I wanted it. I was DELIGHTED!
After letting them sit and acclimate, we stained them with Danish Oil. A few weeks after that I gave them 3 coats of a urethane finish to help with water-proofing and wipe-ability.
Have you ever made your own furniture? It's been a thrill to see my hubby take up this new hobby and use things that are so sentimental to us. We got a lot of ideas from Ana White's website and a few others. I also have a Pinterest board full of handmade building projects we plan to do next.
