Ever since I sold the ugly dining table and converted the dining room into an office, my mother’s been freaking out because I didn’t have a dining table or bar stools. What can I say? I was waiting for the right vintage bar stools to find me. Frankly, most inexpensive modern bar stools are too large and overbearing for my small, lighthearted mid-century inspired space.
My mom can rest easy now: Last night, like love at first sight, these two cheerful mid-century bar stools found me. (Craigslist is like my eHarmony of furniture love.) Disaster averted.
I just love how cheerful the bright red looks against the granny apple green wall. I can’t get enough of this color combo lately, especially in this small room that doesn’t get much natural light.
I guess my love of the color combo accidentally carried over to the kitchen, where I whipped up a tasty and healthy meal for the 7th night of my 21-Day Cleanse diet: Basalmic grillled Portobellos topped with roasted red peppers, with rice and a brussel sprouts.
Aren’t the stools just the cutest? Bonus – An original label on the bottom of one stool says it was manufactured in 1954. Awesome!
And if you’re looking for some reasonably-priced mid-century furniture in the DC area, let me know. The man selling these stools was super nice, and he’s clearing a ton more mid-century stuff out of his storage unit.
