Bar Stools

Guess what came in the mail?

Here are my two cute kiddos who wanted in on the action.

Yep, we finally found some bar stools! I feel like we searched just about everywhere, and because we were having a hard time finding something that we liked and could afford, I was ready to make some. But then we came across this deal from Overstock.

Order Summary
Product Shipping Price

Ladderback 30-inch Barstool (Set of 2)
Ladderback 30-inch Barstool (Set of 2)
Item#: 12722540
Quantity: 1
Ground $136.05

Subtotal: $136.05
Shipping: $1.00
Total: $137.05

Sold. I know they're not the cheapest we could find, but they're solid wood and have a back which we really wanted since we have two little kids. Everything else with a back was at least double the price.

The stools have a dark stain which I knew probably wouldn't go with our floors and greyish-stained table, but since they didn't come assembled, I knew I could sand and stain them the color we wanted.  But of course part of me was hoping the color would still work. I took them out, and sure enough the color wasn't quite right.

So now I'm in the process of refinishing the chairs...hoping to have finished pictures soon!


  1. Congrats! Great choice. Can't wait to see how they turn out!

  2. I can't wait to see what you do with them! I love the style!

  3. Cute kids! Excited to see the stools.
