Buy some old cheap bar stools off www.Trademe.co.nz for $3.00 (for two that is $1.50 each) and then go to SuperCheap Auto and some spray paint on special. Use left over material for the out door furniture covering spending about a total of $10 (for each stool) add in time for sanding back and spraying...
Bar Stools as we bought for $3.00
Recover and painted.
This only took time the cost for the bar stools and paint was so tiny it is not worth the mention. Not only that they look as good as new. They will last a good couple of years before we will need to repair or repaint them.
So cheap bar stools for the bar.
