Did you ever have something forever that you didn’t like, with the full intention of replacing it when you could afford “something better”? Sometimes that day just doesn’t come:) These barstools were that “something” for me. We purchased them at Target years ago in a rush because we needed them right away.
Now that we have a new kitchen, they REALLY looked bad. Since I couldn’t find new ones I liked for the right price, decided to refinish these. Love how they turned out. Even my son asked “Where did we get those…they look nice.” Quite a compliment from and almost-13-year old boy!
In an attempt to avoid a Home Depot run, I gathered some leftover supplies we already had…black and dark grey spray paint, leftover kitchen wall paint (Perfect Taupe by Behr), and spray-on satin finish.
When spray painting furniture, prepping is important. Sand by hand or with an electric palm sander and clean the piece. Ensure the piece is thoroughly dry before you spray. Start with your piece upside down and flip when dry. Before finishing, the tops were distressed with medium-grit sandpaper.

Moral of the story…everything has potential.
