I Got Lucky

We're talking about design here peeps - get your minds straight :)  I think there may actually be something to this whole horseshoe myth.  I'm not usually the girl who scores the awesome furniture deals at the goodwill.  I've never found anything like say a gorgeous headboard ( I still kind of hate her for this ;) ) in someone's trash, although I have no problem dumpster diving if I did happen to see a trashy treasure worth picking.  I'm the girl who does "o.k." finding reasonably priced furniture that we can afford to purchase.  However, the other day at Meijer my luck totally changed!

I scored these

which kind of look just like these from Overstock where they are priced at $89.99 for the pair

for $17.49 per stool!  What's that you say?  You don't believe me?!

Sorry- bad iphone pic
Well, booyah - how do you like them apples or uh er barstools?  :)  They were originally priced at $34.99 a piece and were on clearance.  I scored the last two in "stainless" - which isn't actually stainless but who's gonna run the metal test when they come to visit?  If it walks like a duck, and it looks like a duck - it's all I'm sayin'!  I love them!  I've been making a few changes in the kitchen and these fit in perfectly.  The old barstools are finding a new home either in the family room or the basement; I haven't decided just yet.  Anywho, seriously run out right now and grab yourself a horseshoe :)  It might help you get lucky too!

Hope you had a great weekend!  I did a little spring cleaning (more on that later) and watched Bambi with the kids (that movie makes me cry!).  Thumper is still my favorite character ever!

P.S.  I also took a little time this weekend to start adding some links to the Project tab up above.  Hopefully it makes things a little easier to find around here - go check it out!


  1. What a great find! Love them!

  2. Absolutely stunning! I love a good deal and you my dear found one. Hehehe...and I love the mention. You can hate me anytime for a decor find..especially that one.
