Hubby and I went Farmhouse/French Country shopping today. Now it wouldn't really be farmhouse style if it was expensive, so our shopping took us to used furniture stores, antique stores and a discount store called "Roses". We found bar stools that go perfectly with our theme at Roses. The total price for four was less than the price of one fancier bar stool in a furniture store, and I love them!
I think they will go perfectly in the kitchen:
I really love to get a good deal and put together items that make up my own style. This chair was out in front of a used furniture store. Again, I think it is perfect. The seat is red toile, but can easily be recovered if I choose too. The black wood has a distressed look with slight little bits of red showing through on the edges. I may use it for my sewing machine chair, in the hallway or at the entry.
There is an antique store in my area that is huge and full of stuff. The front portion is pretty high priced, but if you go in the back portion there are some pretty good deals. I am still putting together some dishes for the wall above the window in the dining room and found a couple more today:
A red one:
A green one:
