Shabby Chic Bar Stools

Hi Again! I'm back with yet another blog post tonight!
Last month I teamed up with EllieMac Designs && became an assistant for the lovely Ellie McIntosh. I couldn't believe I was given such a neat opportunity to work with her and be apart of her company!
It is going to be such a great learning experience & I wanted to introduce you guys to her business.
You can find her facebook page here && her website here.
She is an amazing artist and an incredible designer!
She has a huge range in what she can do and would love to work with any of you!
Please checkout her website & facebook page as she has just relocated her business here from Colorado last May. She has worked with many different people and many different budgets, so don't be scared by the idea of an interior designer. She has many talents along with paintings and wall murals. 
So if you have the time check her out and see what she is all about as I will probably be referencing to EllieMac designs in the future :) 

As one of my first to do's she gave me these awesome bar stools she needed done for a clients house.
I'm sad I forgot to take a before picture but they were a dark wood color.
So here are the After's.

For some reason the only pictures I could find were of when I was working on one of the bar stools but both were distressed exactly the same.

We went back and forth between a few different options on the stools and I'm so happy with the choice we agree'd on! I can't wait to see how they look in Ellie's client's home! 

I love the look of the wood on top & the creamy white base with some distressing here and there.
It really brought out the detail of the legs of these adorable bar stools.

I just can't get over how cute they are! Before they were all the same color wood as the seat on the stools.
Ellies client really loves the Shabby Chic Look & Bright colors, I think these neutral but interesting pieces will be a great accent in her clients kitchen!

I think I'm in love. Aren't you?
