Another little kitchen update for you today. (Did I forget to tell you that January is “do little things to make your kitchen a happier place to be” month on the blog? Well, it is now.)
Two of our dining chairs have recently been taken over by two very little people to accommodate baby seats, which leaves us with four chairs and five more people who need a seat around the table. (And, when we had company last week, we had to rotate in and out of the available chairs…)
Eventually, when all seven of us can sit in big seats, I want a long bench for one side of the table.

But, for now, I decided that adding a couple of bar stools at the counter would be a good fix. Of course, they had to be easy to wipe down, and I was hoping for something fun. My parents had these old ice cream stools in storage and brought them to me last summer. I had planned to use them in our kitchen until I realized they were going to scratch our wood floor to pieces, and there was no where to put the felt pads on the feet. (So, we moved them outside and used them as side tables on our patio.)
I was a little hesitant to order these in a color instead of just the metal ones. But, I think they’re a fun addition to our otherwise traditional kitchen. And, when I’ve had enough tangerine, I can probably figure out how to use a can of spray paint :)
(Ack! Just as I was finishing this post, I saw that the tangerine bar stools have sold out, in the case you felt like you had to have the very same ones :) But, you can sign up to be notified when they get more. They are still available in the counter height and in both heights in other colors. . . )
