We're moving...

Moving day is closing in on us and I am realizing just how excited I am to take up thrifting, building, and DIYing again for a new house. I spent a lot of time on this blog the first few years I lived in our current house and when the projects I had envisioned from the start were complete, the time spent DIYing and writing the blog was quickly replaced with more "serious" work endeavors. But summer is here and we are moving to Utah! I'm not sure how much I will post about the new house but I can hardly stand not showing off some before and afters of the projects I've been working on lately... and we haven't even moved yet.

We are still under contract but I will post pictures of the new house as soon as it's officially ours. The house is a 1964 ranch and we have taken to the idea that we want to find some cool mid century modern pieces.

First up, I found these industrial bar stools that were in rough shape at an antique/thrift shop for $10 a piece.

I thought the chairs might have a wiggle problem due to all the tape on the legs. When we took the tape off we discovered that the legs extended another couple feet and were very stable. NO idea why the tape was on there...

We sanded the bar stools down and I used about 3 cans of white Rustoleum spray paint on them. The wood on the seats was soaking up spray paint like mad so I used some regular white paint on the seats and finished them off with Minwax poly for protection. 

Oh by the way.. Utah is beautiful. This is Bear Lake, about 45 minutes from the new house!
