Hypersonic Stools – Take 2

Following on from last weeks post on the matching pair of Hypersonic bar stools tonight I can reveal the finished product.

Meadmore Style Vintage Bar Stools

I am very happy with the end result. I feel the gloss red enamel paint really contrasts well against the black vinyl upholstery. I have a sneaking suspicion that originally the colours would of been reversed, much like a similar chair I recently came accross on eBay.

Be sure to keep an eye on our online store. The stools will be listed for sale within the next week or so!

Hypersonic Industries & A Pair Of Vintage Bar Stools

For those of you familiar with our twitter account – http://twitter.com/#!/StillBrokeENT towards the end of last week you would of seen a sneak peak of a makers label on the bottom of a seat of some kind.

Just from the manufactures name alone, being ‘Hypersonic Industries’ you get the feeling that this piece is going to be pretty cool…..and it definitely does not disappoint!

Retro 1950/60's Stools

What we have are a matching pair of vintage bar stools. Manufactured from round steel rod, these stools have a great, yet simple design. I especially love the ‘fan’ shape back support.

They were in pretty good condition for their age (I’m thinking they date from the 1950/60’s) however being all black, they were a little drab, so I undertook the task of freshening these stools up and giving them a new lease on life!

The frames were lightly sanded and then coated with a heavy duty primer, before being coated with pressure pack enamel paint. The seat upholstery, being a black vinyl is in very good condition and appears to of been recovered at some stage, and thus only required a clean with some warm, soapy water.

Be sure to check back later on in the week for the reveal!
