Have an old Bar Stool in your home then this Brushstroke Art Design is great way to refinish and completely transform a basic Wooden Bar Stool.
We all have or at one point in our lives owned a simple pair of Bar Stools which do a great job as a chair but don’t look that great in our home decor.
When I purchased this Bar Stool from the thrift store I had this gorgeous Brush Stroke Art design that I was going to paint onto it.
This sure is a one of kind Bar Stool.
Before I hop into the actual makeover let me show you guys how the Bar Stool looked Originally.
Someone had clearly tried to paint it as well.
The scratches and paint peeling off didn’t bother me as I myself was going to paint over it which was going to cover everything.

Tutorial for Brushstroke Art Bar Stool Makeover
I ended up choosing these beautiful colors for my Bar Stool.
I obviously went with super loud and bright paint colors.
No surprises here!
I started off by painting the entire stool in the beautiful deep blue color, Sapphire .
The paint glides on in such a creamy way and has a durable, hard finish which, once fully cured, is highly resistant to household cleaning chemicals.
I applied two coats of the paint and after that gave the Bar Stool one whole day to dry out before I created my pattern onto it.
The next day with my masking tape I taped off two diamond patterns on to the Bar Stool seat.
You basically tape a big square and create a smaller square in the middle.
And then it was time for the fun part which was to create the Brushstroke Pattern.
The thing that made all the difference was to use an Angled brush for this process.
I used DecoArt’s paintbrush which made it so much easier to get the brush stroke effect that I wanted.
I started with the color Juicy Melon on the sides and Aqua Water for the bigger diamond shape.
I went along and filled in the masking tape area painting vertically and horizontally.
And for the middle diamond pattern I painted it with the Orange color.
This honestly is such a fun technique that I decided to do the same thing on the legs of the Bar Stool as well.
I eyeballed and split the legs in three parts and painted them with the same three colors that I used on the top of the stool.
Orange, Coral and Turquoise.
Using the Angled Paintbrush is a must as it gives you the perfect brushstrokes every single time.
You can make the strokes wider or thinner, however you prefer.
I didn’t keep mine perfect and went along with the imperfect strokes which I honestly liked more.
And there you have it such a fun little makeover of an old wooden bar stool.
