It's true! Patience does pay off.
We have been searching everywhere for stools that we both love and that are within our budget. We almost bought some at Ikea, but they were rickety. Then I found some at Winners that I fell in love with. They were white padded leather with backs and a chrome base. I took a picture to show Jason who fell in love with them too, but when he went back for them the next day, they were gone. :(
It was at that point that we knew what style we wanted. We wanted white padded seats with chrome legs, preferably with a back. Over the next few weeks we found a few stools that would have worked, but none that made me excited. Until I went on Kijiji (Canadian version of Craigslist) and found these stools for just $35!!
With a happy giggle I rushed to send a panicked e-mail to the listers to see if they were still available.
Well, THEY WERE!
There were...5 of them! We were only going to get 2 but then I panicked again and said we would take 3 of them. She gave us 3 of them for $100. Which was awesome!
They are gorgeous and...they SWIVEL!
The only thing is that they are a little tall. If your thighs are larger than mine, then your legs may not fit very comfortably under the eating area. Jason says that we should be able to cut them down. They could use an inch or two off the bottom!
But in the meantime, I had fun taking pictures of these beauts this morning!
And yes...that is tonight's dinner sitting there on display.
Caleb enjoyed his breakfast there this morning.
I love that he still loves to wear footie pajamas!
You know who is going to love them the most? My cake decorating feet! They've been aching for a seat to take the pressure off! I can't wait to test them out in the cake decorating arena next week!
Anyway, I'm going to go sit on them for awhile and stare out the window!
P.S. If you are wanting some stools like this in the Lethbridge area, the lady still has 2 left (and one is even still in the box!) Quick, go on kijiji and then send her panic induced e-mail to get your hands on the rest!
