New Stools

I know I should be updating on The Handbuilt Bedroom, but it’s too grey to take pictures in my son’s room right now.  Instead I thought I show my new kitchen acquisitions…I have stools!

Although our previous home did have a bar of sorts, we never had any bar stools because it would have been too crowded with the table right next to it.  In this home, though, the island is perfect for some extra seating.

I scoured Craigslist for some stools I could paint, but never did find anything with enough “pizzaz” for me—or that came in a set of three—or that was the right price!

I had about given up on the hunt, when I walked into Pier 1 and saw these beauties:  the Weldon stools

They come in both bar- and counter-height--although I personally think “counter-height” ought to be 26” rather than 24”—and they come in a whole bunch of great colors!  I fell in love!

I couldn’t choose a favorite…can’t you tell??

Thanks to a 20% off coupon, they came home with me.

The kids love them, and even I will take advantage of the extra seating now and again…especially when there are warm cookies on the counter!

Not a paid advertisement…I just like the stools!

Ya know, it's bad enough that your photos show a cute clean kitchen but do you have to post photos of cookies too?? You're making me look bad!! :D

Great stools! I love the different colors. One color would be too boring.

Korrie I just popped into Pier 1 yesterday and saw those, loving them too!!! And then I see your post - it's surreal - and looks like you've been busy baking away. Nice choice on the fun colors.
