Fun with duct tape - no I haven't yet read 50 Shades of Grey
So when we remodeled the house to open up the kitchen 11 years ago, we found these fun bar stools. I forget where it was but there were three of them and they were being discontinued. I thought we should buy them all. Jeff thought we only had room for two. I still believe we should have bought three. But we didn't. We've had good luck with the chairs over the years. Oh sure, the random toddler ignored my advice and toppled from them from time to time, but there were no serious injuries. Except to the seats. Over the years, they each had a few tears and rubbed off places. From time to time, I'd think about getting them re-upholstered. Usually after I saw something fantastic project my friend Lesley had done and posted on her Design File Blog. But life would intervene and I'd just push them in thinking about whether to just buy three new ones. Then, while making a midnight run to Target for some last-minute school need, I passed by a display of duct tape. Yeah. Duct tape. It really is the best thing ever.
