And they are done! All four of them. And I even managed to paint the bar stools.
The fourth one is on the other side of the counter. There is a little niche where a wine fridge will eventually go but for now I tuck the stool under there so when I'm cooking and people are gathered at the counter I can stop and sit and sip a glass of wine with them.
Please excuse the missing bit of baseboard on the wall - our kitchen has a few details that still need finishing.
By the fourth one I had the system of assembling down. I did lightly pad the tops by sandwiching a light weight cotton batting between two pieces of material. I did that more for weight/stiffness than for comfort.
While I was working on them yesterday Belle kept hopping up on the counter and laying on everything. She thought she was helping and wanted to be in the picture too.
