A while ago, we bought some stools for our kitchen island, which makes midweek dinners and weekend breakfasts a little more casual. Plus, for the first time, the man can perch there while I cook dinner (he don’t cook).


I bought the stools from IKEA, but didn’t like any of the covers they had. And the kitchen, whilst pretty impactful, I would call neutral in colour, so it needed a bit of a hit of colour.

So I finally found some fabric that I liked, and whipped those covers up (not without a fair few tanties though, I can’t sew, and using the sewing machine involves a lot of trial, and a lot of error).

I think they’re nice and bright, non?
