Pull Up a Stool

We have friends coming over for dinner this weekend, so I'm busy this week working hard to finish a few more last minute projects in the house.  Entertaining is always my best motivation for cleaning and organizing things I would usually let slide, since it's a FUN reason for cleaning, not just maintenance.  We are still a bit in construction mode-- for instance the kitchen only has about half of the cabinet doors painted and rehung at this point-- but they'll just get to use their imaginations a bit:)

I feel like I've been posting a lot about buying things lately, but I promise I'm still actually DOING things, too, and can't wait to post lots of photos of the projects we've been working on.  I just have to finish some of them first...  In the meantime, we've been debating what kind of counter stools to buy for our new kitchen island, and there are lots of fun choices out there.  

We love the seagrass look, and these stools from Z Gallerie were our first choice for ages.  We eventually decided to go with something different, since we already have a sisal rug in the room, and the two together would be too much.  And how would you ever get stray food out of the spaces of that knobby material??  Still, they look amazing, and they're really comfortable.

This one has clean lines and an easy to blend in chocolate color, $79.99.  Wouldn't they look great perked up with some nailhead trim?

For a more industrial look, I love these chrome metal stools, the perfect counterpoint to a warm, traditional kitchen. On sale for $111.00

How fun are these?  An instant pop of color, without having to repaint a thing:) For $143.00.

In the end we decided to go with something a little more on the sleek, industrial side, since we have plenty of warm elements in the room.  The other factor is that the seating part of our island won't exactly be roomy, so we needed small stools that aren't too wide for the space.  In the end we picked up these from Target for just 49.99 each!  They are adjustable, they swivel, and they're comfortable, so we're sold.

Photos coming soon!
