Aqua Bar Stools

A month or so ago I missed out on a pair of bar stools at my local op-shop. I had one of those challenging parenting moments; Emma kept wandering away and after the second time I had said we would go straight home if it happened again. If you have children you know what happened next and I said goodbye to the bar stools. UGH.

Then on my recent trip to Sydney I found this pair and knew the parenting gods had smiled on me. I know those seat covers are gross, even more so when you realise your daughter has been wearing one of them on her head. My girls on a roll.

With a little aqua paint, these have come up lovely. It's nice coming into summer and using such bright, happy colours (so for those who are coming into Fall, you've had your fun!). If I had my dream kitchen makeover these would be staying, but alas, that is yet to happen. The way my home goals are going it may never happen... but that's another story. There's a reason there is no home tour on my blog!!!

These included a cute little note from the op shop - 'These are harder to find than you think!' Luckily for me I'd found another pair, but how sweet that the op shop let me know! When we went back that afternoon to re-look at something I was undecided on there was a third stool, but no more room in the car.
