The Bar Stools Reveal

1.29.2016

I left you hanging yesterday about my bar stools situation. 
Several of you guessed that I either painted them again or corrected the finish with some dark wax or glaze and a couple of you said maybe I went shopping.




Paint them again?? No, way Jose...... I went shopping.




I was browsing some websites for some decently priced stools and most were out of my budget. Then an email from Ballard's outlet popped in my inbox and one of the things on sale this week were the bar stools at 50% off. So off to Ballard's outlet I went on Monday to see what they had. I really was not expecting to find three of the same stool.

On their website these stools are regularly priced at $349 each. Sorry not enough in my pocketbook for three of them. Do the math plus taxes and shipping. The stools at the outlet were marked down to $269 each plus the 50% off! Score! I got the three for only $40 more than the price of ONE on line.



I love the rush seats for my French country style and the metal for a bit of industrial. The curved back fits so comfortably on my back and they swivel, too.


So happy to find these to replace the paint project gone bad that I was NOT doing again.
I feel like I have big girl bar stools now.

First thing Mr. Savvy said when he saw these was....your not going to paint these.

Silly man, of course not any time soon.

No, I really have no plans on painting these, but I like to give him a hard time.

We are picking up Miss Bailey later.
 Y'all have a great weekend!

  13. Oh Kim, I LOVE them! The style is just perfect for your kitchen! I was eyeing those stools up too but since the seats are 25 inches high, I was nervous about going that extra inch if I ever wanted to add a cushion. (24 is ideal for my island). Are they comfortable? They really look gorgeous in your home!
