Let's belly up to the bar!


Hello everyone!

Do you remember when I said I had something new in the kitchen that my pine chest might be jealous of?  Well......this is it!


Do you see it?  It's that industrial looking, yet warm and comfortable swivel bar stool. Can you tell I really like it?  I can only show you one at the moment because its mate is in transit on the good ole Fed-ex truck.  I'm anxious for it to get here. 



I love it's iron legs and wooden seat. I called it warm because of its wooden seat. 


And that wooden seat, right there, swivels around!  Cool huh?  Plus, it is adjustable.  If you turn the seat round and round, the seat will raise to a bar height.  Right now, it is set at a counter height. I got it at World Market. 

Do you see my son sitting there?  He's playing his X-Box.  His latest obsession.  He will be sitting on these bar stools.


I know I just got the other metal bar stools in the Fall, but when I saw these, I realized this was a better match for my kitchen.  I decided to keep one of them  for use in the cooking area of the kitchen if I should need it.


So now I will be selling all of  my old  bar stools  at the consignment shop.  I have been doing quite well at the consignment shop lately.  Did you know that I have almost a $200 credit with them so far?  That is the result of cleaning out my basement of home decor and Christmas decorations that I wasn't using anymore.  I will use that money to pay for these new stools!  If you have a consignment shop near you, you should really consider using them!

Next, I will show you something that I purchased on Wuslu.  It's in my kitchen too. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I do like your new stool. I am looking at the red ones like the ones you are selling. Not sure though. Right now I am having to buy things for the powder room. Yay!

They've got great looking legs! I do like them better. I had a consignment shop in Texas I did quite a bit of business with. Really liked that place.

Your kitchen is beautiful! I love the mix of white with wicker & metals. Makes me want to paint my kitchen cabinets white! What an inspiration. The stools are great too.

That is a great looking stool. I like it more than just all metal, you are right the wood warms it up! Like seeing the kiddo in the background~I would like to find a furniture consignment shop around here...I did find a clothing shop that I brought some of my nicer but no longer used things to.

The new barstools are lovely! I really adore the shape of the legs.

Hope your kiddoes are feeling better. Sick kids is so not fun!

You might not want to hear this, but temps here in our AZ desert have been in the 70's & 80's! I know, sorry! Try to stay warm!
