Cool Stools

As I've mentioned before, "nesting" has really taken much so that things that are waaay unrelated to baby coming are still at the top of my list of "to dos".

I bought these green bar stools on Craigslist for $10 a stool. Immediately I thought, "need new paint". For only $10 a pop, I knew investing in a little paint wouldn't be a bank-killer.

When discussing my plans one night with my family to pick up the stools from the Craigslist seller, somebody (whose name I will not mention) decided to remind us of the other definition for stools. That led to reading all the emails again between the seller and I....which as you can see, struck us as quite funny.

Here's what the stools look like now, painted black. Much better I think. I love them because I use them every single day when eating breakfast, lunch, or hahaha....checking things off my list. ;0)

Paint stools: check.

Have a beautiful & craftsy day,

Funny, Gail. Love it! I love the transformation of your stools from greenish to black:) You'll be seeing some more little black stools soon in the form of your baby's soiled diaper-hehe!

Seriously though, love how you painted them. They look awesome! I want to come over soon and see what you've been doing around the house.

Love you,

Haha, laughing at Gwenny's comment...and it is true! More black stools are definitely in your near future!!!

You did a great job of updating those with the paint. Are those the ones that you were telling me about a while back??? The ones that you just had to have???

Love you!

Gail said...

Yes! Matt finally caved when I told him how much they were going to get used and what a great deal they were! Now he uses them every single day too!

Grace said...

Hey, you need to post nursery pics BEFORE the baby comes...afterward you'll be so darn worn out that you won't have time, haha! (JK, well, sort of)...still, I want to see your nursery! Love you!

Love, Grace

Hi Gail,
I've been thinking of you! Congratulations on your sweet baby boy! I remember reading your post on the boy/girl cake - can't believe time has flown by so quickly.
We're due any day now and the thought of you up at 4am for feedings sounds quite wonderful to me. I'm up anyway, unable to sleep due to SIZE, and would love to have a baby in my arms.
Thinking of you and happy holiday season!
