We finally got kitchen barstools a few weeks ago and I am loving them. They are perfect for the space. Since I went almost a year without anything, I realized that whenever I'm cooking, people always gather on that side of the bar to talk with me, so I didn't want stools getting in the way. After searching and searching, we found these at Bed, Bath & Beyond and thanks to my mom and her 7 million 20% off coupons, they cost me a mere $31 a stool! What a steal!
And, although you can't really see them in these pictures, we got new pendant lights and they are the bomb. I heart them so.
