I love these metal high stools.  My brother and I used to fight over who would get to sit in the one at grandma and grandads house.  This one I just couldnt get the vinyl or retro crappy plastic covering on the seat and back rest, so I started over with it.  I did love the yellow that it came in.

Hey, I have some old metal chair frames in our garage. Might take on a project like this for the winter so we can actually, finally, use them when company comes over. Will take pix if I do. Posted: 3:47 pm on December 18th
