We rearranged the furniture in the family room yesterday, after ripping up the laminate.
And now we can access the breakfast bar again. So... we are going out today to hunt for durable bar stools.
The last lot we got, at considerable expense I might add, did not stand up to vigorous use by kids (read Griffin)! They were too high spec, with gas lift etc.
This time around we want rugged, simple and durable.
I did some 'homework' on the 'net last night and have narrowed it down to just a few.
Can you guess which one above is the $299 one?
That's all I have on today's agenda. Kelly and Rena are due here around lunchtime, hopefully we are home by then!
We bought the ones I had my eye on. Will show you when we get home.
By the way, the one that was $299 is the wood and metal one, top left with the green metal band and winding up mechanism. It wasn't comfortable at all, and we just could not justify the cost. The other three did not appeal when seen in person.
We bought 4 of the stools at the very top, we ordered a red one, blue one, green one and white one.
They only had the white and red ones still 'in the box', so we have to wait for the other two.... BUT HOLD ON.
We got home and opened the two boxes :
And the white one had a massive wobble on it, so I had to turn around and drive back to Sylvia Park to return it. So bloody annoying.
And the other white one in the shop had a big chip on one of the legs... so now we are waiting on three of them. *sigh*.
Not my day again.
Kelly and Rena are here... and this happened:
ABOVE: she got her surprise. I'm uploading the video...
ABOVE: Kelly sitting on our solitary bar stool.
ABOVE: the video of Brylee getting her surprise. So funny.
End of Day: It was nice to see Kelly and Rena and for Brylee to get such a nice surprise. Time to head off to bed.
