I want to replace my counter stools at my breakfast bar with some metal stools (more like chairs) that I bought and plan to recover. I've been trying one out for a few weeks and I've noticed that the front of the stool touches the wall under the counter and damages the paint when it is pushed in. I've been looking at wallguards and bumpers, but I think they were designed for a more institutional setting. I don't think a wooden chair rail would work or look right. Has anyone ever dealt with this situation? Any ideas? So far, this rub rail looks most promising, but I'm afraid it would look cheap in a home setting. What do you think?

As ridiculously obvious as this may sound have you considered not pushing them in so far as to hit the wall?

I almost addressed that in my post! If only it were that easy! I could probably refrain from pushing them all the way in, but I know my children and husband could not and I don't want to be after them all the time about it. I could buy different chairs, but I'd rather not and I'm trying to find a solution using these. Thanks.

That product looks very commercial. Why not just use some wood molding in the same design as your interior? Some under counter use molding to frame in the area as a bump guard, then if that gets bumped you can replace the molding.

This isn't a "cheap" solution, but at least it's a better looking option than an institutional blob on the wall.

It should have enough projection on it that it would prevent the chair from hitting the wall- assuming of course that the chairs have 4 legs.
