When browsing photos on the group TRUCS/DÉCOS en tout Genre, I really liked the transformation of the stools that she did, so I contacted her and asked if she could write a blog.
Isabelle Ploudre is very passionate about recovery and especially for wood.
 Having an island in her newly acquired house that didn’t have any benches, she chose to give some dining room bistro stools a makeover.
It was while browsing the internet that she was inspired to do this upgrade.

Step 1-Preperation


  • remove the seats
  • clean your benches with TSP
  • rince well with warm water to make sure that all the residue has been removed
  • using an 80 grit sandpaer lightly sand all surfaces
  • wipe again with a cloth and warm water to remove any dust
  • lightly sand with a 200 grit sand paper then wipe off any dust with your cloth
   It is now time to paint

Step 2-Painting


  • using a #6 oval brush, apply your first coat of Tractor Dust
  • Once this coat has had time to dry, apply a second coat
  • When your second coat has had time to dry, apply the colour Volcano, lightly over all of your surfaces



Step 3-The Protection

  • Mix one part Night, to two parts Clear Window Glaze
  • Using your #6 oval paint brush, apply the glaze and let your imagination flow until you get your desired results.
  • Rest assured, it is possible to make corrections as the project advances.
  • If you find the effect too pronounced you can reduce it by wiping with a damp cloth
  • It is also possible to add glaze to accentuate the effect.
  • It is important to apply the glaze on all of the surfaces to obtain a maximum protection.



Step 4-The drying time


  • Isabelle waited two weeks before using the stools to make sure that the paint had time to harden and could resist friction.


With this new colour and a new choice of fabric, Isabelle has given new life to her kitchen island chairs.
For a few dollars, here are three magnificent very comfortable kitchen stools for this new island.

Married for almost 45 years, mother of two children and grandmother of two granddaughters, I am now retired. Native of Delson, in Montérégie, my little family and I made the big move 29 years ago to come and settle near Mont-Laurier in the Hautes-Laurentides. Our dream being to restore an old house, we acquired a house built in 1906 and it was on June 21, 1992 that this great adventure began. I love decor and love originality, seven years ago I discovered a passion for the revaluation of furniture and various salvaged objects. Now that the house has been fully restored, I have great pleasure in personalizing it exclusively and at a low price.
