stools

Instead of barstools for Foam I have picked up a collection of shop stools over time. The bulk of them came from the surplus department at a local University. The great thing about them is that they are dated 1986 on the bottom but have never been used. Some of them came from thriftstores. I sprayed painted them a range of colors. I could have had them powder coated for a more durable finish but the cost would have been astronomical. Instead I just painted them myself. Over time they'll scratch up but I think it'll be more of a nice patina rather than look shoddy.

Have you ever tried a spray poly over the paint to help with durability? I've not tried it myself, but I know people who swear by it.

Things are really starting to come together - I'm sorry I missed the Rehabbers Club event there!
