Pottery Barn Inspired Barstools



I am soo into typography and the look of these numbers that I
have now painted my own fabric with them on it.


Remember when I was inspired by this PB numbered canvas wall art for this table?


And then my library table inspired my back to school desk.


It has inspired yet another project. 
Don't you just love it when that happens. 
An idea just comes to you and everything falls into place perfectly. 
I love how these barstools turned out. 
I used the same number template that I created for the table on the barstools.
I used my overhead to trace the letters onto some canvas dropcloth.


This picture is not the greatest. 
I accidentially deleted my other "in process" and "before" pics off of my camera.
I thought that they were already downloaded, and needed space for birthday pictures. 
I painted the numbers with black acrylic craft paint and staple on the chairs.
They were covered in your standard, store bought industrial
neutral home decor fabric.  They were super basic and BORING!


They were very similar to this one.
