Christmas in February!

For Christmas my parents gave us a gift certificate to Pottery Barn. They gave it to us with the intentions of us buying chairs for the dining room. I kinda ruined that plan....oops!. More to come on that later, but I am sorry 'bout that mom!!! Anyhow, Pottery Barn definitely gets loads of flattery from me in the form of imitation. I LOVE me some Pottery Barn. But I also love to take ideas and concepts from their catalogs and change them up. Make them my own. Put my own spin on it.....ok, ok you get the point. I like to be Sarah plain and simple, but with some unique twists thrown in. Kinda like the HOME sign I made that was inspired by Pottery Barn. But some Pottery Barn things just can't be made by me, so I am always stalking their outlet stores for the next treasure to take home. 

Well, DH & I happened to drop by the other night and low and behold we found a bargain! Remember, I posted during our 3 month progress & when we were hiding blue holes I posted the following picture of only 2 barstools.

Well, obviously that bar is made for 3 barstools, but I've just been too cheap to buy them all at once. I've been patiently impatiently waiting for them to come into the outlet store. And BAM, the other night they had one marked almost 67% off and you got an extra 15% off one item for their President's Day sale!! That made it almost 73% off. AND we had that gift certificate from my parents!!! WHOO-hoo! Christmas in February, people! We swiped it up and then crammed it into the backseat of the car.  And we didn't even use 1/4 of the gift certificate to buy it! 

It's crazy how much better 3 looks than 2. Or maybe I am just so thrilled to have picked up all 3 barstools for the price of 1!!
