I wasn't sure/still am not sure about what kind of stools I want for the kitchen. There isn't a ton of room to tuck the stools under on the long side so we knew we needed them small.
For the time being we went to walmart and bought $24 saddle stools.
If you recall, mom started this project during our pinterest party. I don't really have formal instructions but I can try to list them out. All you need is a staple gun, staples, fabric, foam, and batting. A strong hand would help too, that staple gun is hard to use.
She put the foam on the chair, then put batting around it and secured it with staples.
Gigi was feeling a bit over ambitious and decided to take 2 of the chairs you see her standing by (we use 2 for the deep side of the island overhang) and cover those chairs. They have a hard sturdy seat that comes off.
