Beachy Bar Stools

My sister Becky and her husband Nathaniel left today after a week long visit and I already miss them! We pretty much spent the whole time painting, shopping and taking pictures.

I couldn't wait for my sister to bring me this beautiful chair that she re-did for me. Turns out Nathaniel loved it too much to say goodbye (I don't blame him). As a trade off and an amazing one at that, they bought me three Ingolf bar stools from Ikea!

I have wanted them forever; they remind me of stools you would find in a cute beach house. But at $99 each, I couldn't bring myself to buy them. I am self admittedly cheap! They didn't have them in white so we took my sisters compressor to them and they turned out great.

Here they are in their new home! Thank you Becky and Nathaniel, and thanks for bringing your compressor. We pretty much spent the whole weekend painting so I have some pretty great posts coming up.

Thank you ladies for all of your comments. I can't wait to get my very own paint sprayer! There will be no stopping me then.
