What Houzz contributors are saying:
Darken your seat covers. Re-covering stool or chair pads is an easy way to try the look. Buy some fabric (faux leather or water-resistant fabrics are ideal if you have young children and need to clean the seats regularly) and use a staple gun to attach it to the seat. Turn your stool or chair upside down to see if the seat can be unscrewed to make the process even easier. Start along one side, pull taut and staple the opposite side. Make folds at the corners and trim excess fabric close to the staples.For a finish with pleats and tucks, as shown on the seats here, your best bet is going to an upholsterer unless you’re handy with a tack hammer and webbing stretcher.
4. Hardware. Even the tiniest of kitchen accessories can don a black finish. Cabinet hardware is no exception. There’s more than one finish to choose from, including iron, nickel and oil-rubbed bronze. Iron hardware is perfect for traditional-, Spanish- or Mediterranean-style kitchens, as is oil-rubbed bronze, which brings a bit of warmth to the table. Sleek black nickel hardware adds a polished touch to contemporary and modern designs. Opt for large pulls to show off more black.
