Perfection and a Let-Down

Yesterday morning I was out running errands while MMB was at soccer camp. I had five minutes to spare before Ulta opened, so I ran into Marshall's to check out their home items. Let me say this... I never go into Marshall's. I can't tell you the last time I've been. However, OMG! Their home items are amazeballs. It's like a mini Home Goods in the back of the store! I was impressed. Needless to say, I have a feeling I will frequent this store for this section much more in the next six months.

Our kitchen in the new house will have an island with a counter height bar. I chose this because I wanted more working counter space and I am liking how the counter height bars look these days. Here is a picture of our kitchen. That entire island will be counter height.

So I'm thinking I want three bar stools for the island. Obviously I will need counter height bar stools. 

Here's where Marshall's comes in.

Look at this counter height bar stool:

SWOON! It's gray (so is my kitchen island cabinets). The four legs and three of the "foot rests" are light wood (my wood floors are pine). The front "foot rest" is stainless silver (so are my appliances and hardware). 


And, Dude, it was only $129! The ones I have been looking at in various places online are $300+ each. 

I snapped a photo. Texted it to Jesse. He approved in a roundabout kind of way.

*Insert let-down and pouty eyes here* They only had one. I need three. 

UGH! I'm on the hunt. If you happen to go to Home Goods, Marshalls, or TJ Maxx in the next couple of days and see any of these, call me. I know where to find one (me and my new friend at Marshall's have a deal that she is going to hide this as long as she can for me in hopes I find two more), but I need three! 


  1. Two things you could do... Have Marshall's call the other Marshall's/TJ Maxx/Home Goods in the area and see if anyone else has them... OR find out who makes the chair and google other retailers.... Not sure if either would work but it's worth a shot.

  2. Call the homegoods here in charleston and if they have it I wikk go get it for u!!
