Bamboo Bar Stools

I must have liked these bar stools at some point because I bought them and intended to recover the seats in another fabric but it has taken me a while to get to it.

Well, I finally found a fabric that I really like when I made new roman shades for the kitchen. It’s from Greenhouse and reminds me of a suzani print. Here they are covered in their new fabric…….

I know, the fabric is gorgeous and the palm trees have to go ! One way to get rid of them is to paint the whole chair. I’ve seen a lot of painted bamboo and I am a big fan. I love these lime green ones by Jonathan Adler………….

The red bamboo chair in Lonny is nice too……

But the flame orange on these chairs from Firstdibs is what I’m LOVING !

Did you know that most people either love or hate the color orange.  It stimulates appetites and encourages socialization. Sounds perfect for my kitchen !
Remember, my front door is orange (caramel latte, BM)

So, what do you think, would you paint them ?

Tammy you HAVE to paint them! The fabric is so cool you wouldn't do them justice if you left them in the natural bamboo state. Go for it!

Yes yes yes! Ok Tammy: I am loving your front door...we'll see what color I end up with!
But those chairs are great and I adore the fabric.

Hey, Tammy! I say paint them! I love the look of painted bamboo. Even though there's not any green in your gorgeous fabric, I'm wondering how they would look painted green? Hmmm? Just a thought!

I am with the others, Tammy, and say yes, I would paint them! I think the orange would work really well with your fabric.

Cindy said...

oh yes, i would sooo paint them... a nice bright color :)

You do those chairs no justice until you change their color!!! They will look wonderful painted to coordinate with that gorgeous fabric! I have a table and 4 chairs that need to be sprayed. Am thinking red, but that green you showed would look gorgeous, too. Keep us apprised with the update. :-) Sue

I agree! I like the flaming orange option too. I am looking for some bamboo chairs for our breakfast nook. The fabric you picked out is awesome. Thanks for your sweet words on my blog:)

Thanks for all the great input ! Now if it will just stop raining this weekend........ Since the wall under my bar is already green I'm leaning towards Orange !

Yes paint them, that fabric is gorgeous. I would go with a white paint, or cream, cant tell what the suzani has in it. Gorgeous!

charm home said...

Definitely paint them. And I'm a huge orange fan. It's all over my house and my wardrobe. Go for the orange!!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I agree with the others---go for the paint! I think orange would look wonderful. :) Your fabric choice is awesome!

Thanks so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party! I hope you'll visit me at Serenity Now again soon. :)

It's official - you MUST paint them! Depending on where they are, the orange would look great, or maybe the chocolate brown color. You have some great colors to go from in your fabric. Be sure and post pics of where they go!

Orange is my favorite as evidence all over my blog. haa-haa. Orange would be fantastic. Can't wait to see the finished product. The fabric is lovely.

Dina @ Honey + Fitz said...

When it comes to orange I am definitely in the LOVE category! I painted my faux bamboo chair that same flame orange and it makes me happy every time I look at it.
