I just got in late yesterday from a wild weekend in Las Vegas, but I’m here for a quick before and after transformation for your Monday.

Last week, I stopped by my mother-in-law’s house to recover these Pottery Barn ‘Tanner’ stools for her with a really funky and fun pattered faux leather. Her house has a lot of really fun touches, and these stools are no exception.  The rest of this room is relatively free of pattern, so the stools make a big statement for being so small.

Also, I get a lot of questions about the upholstery gun I use, and to all of you who have an air compressor, buying an upholstery gun for the compressor is a quick solution and makes projects like this really fast (I did two stools in an hour), but is moderately pricey at around$100.  For people who either don’t have a compressor, or for beginners who don’t want the financial investment, I highly recommend this Power Shot Pro for about $20.

Have a GREAT Monday!


P.S. For those of you who were following along on instagram this weekend, I had a fabulous time in Vegas, but could have used a tad more sleep before getting my week started.  I suppose I’ll have to catch up this weekend!
