Our New Ikea Bar Stools
Goodbye, kitchen table!
See ya later, TV stand!
Adios, wooden hutch!
Even though we had to get rid of some really big pieces, we actually had to buy a few new pieces as well. After moving in, we quickly realized that we needed 2 bar stools for our kitchen island. With no room for a kitchen table, this would be our makeshift “dining” area. Not very romantic for those lovely home cooked meals with my man, but that’s city living for ya!
On one hand we didn’t want to spend a ton of money on new bar stools, specifically because we’re unsure if we’ll need them at our next place. On the other hand, we didn’t want stools so cheap that they fall apart by Christmas.
We decided to hit up Ikea and see if we could find 2 stools for about $200.
Luckily, we spotted these 2 stools for $119 a piece. Sure it was a little over our small budget, but they were just what we wanted!
My man got to work putting them together (ohhh Ikea, so many steps!) and they were both done in under an hour.
Now we have a nice comfy spot for our bums.
