My barstools were such a dissapointment that some friends encouraged me to try to return them to Overstock. The quality is obviously not good since these chairs have only had 30 days of use and already look like this.
I called Overstock and they were happy to help me out and I am able to return them!!!! I am so impressed with their company now - their customer service really was great. I will definitely work with them again on other purchases.
As far as new barstools, I decided to try these ones from Target. Mainly because they have a 90 day return policy (unlike overstock's which is just 30 days). And they are easy to return since I can just return them to a store if needed. So these ones are on the way.
The backs are not as tall which I am sad about but I couldn't find any other white leather chairs with a high back. This time I will be leaving these chairs unpainted for at least a 90 day period to test the quality of the chairs. If they pass the 90 day test I will then be investing my time and painting these ones (same paint and pattern as last time). I think this time I will not be using the acrylic finisher and test how the paint holds up on it's own. Hopefully the results on these ones will go a lot better! By Valentines I'll let you all know - Ha Ha!
