Cool Stool

I've been holding out for just the right stool to snug up to this counter in my kitchen.  It's a relatively small space ~ plus the back door opens onto it.  I'm happy to have finally found it.

I've had this stool pulled up to the counter for years.  It's served the purpose, but I've never really been in love with it ~ it's one you see everywhere.   

I spotted this vintage metal stool at Round Top last week ~ industrial cool.

~ and it only cost $6.00!

~ The perfect mix of patina + style ~ 

I'm reminded all over again that patience and persistence pays off.  My word of encouragement to you ~ is to hold out and sooner or later you can usually find exactly what you are looking for ~ and for a reasonable price.
