The Perfect Jo-Jo Bar Stools

Meet my new bar stools…


When I found out I was going to have seating for 4 at the new kitchen island, I immediately started looking for super cool bar stools.  You know the kind of stool that has the barn wood seat and an industrial metal base?

A local furniture store had some really cool stools (similar to the ones pictured above) but they were going to require 8-10 weeks for delivery so I AXED that idea!

I was looking everywhere online too.  I was being super picky and I was trying to also stick to my budget (since I’ve fallen off the budget train too many times to count ALREADY).  Some of the stools were too clunky at the bottom or they were the complete opposite and didn’t have a place to rest your feet at all.  Some of them had all this decorative junk on them, like metal studs going around the wood seat.  If this is your thing, then there is a link to that particular stool, just click photo below.  It just doesn’t match the style of my kitchen.

I really just wanted to call up Jo-Jo and ask her where she finds all those awesome stools for her homes on Fixer Upper. If only, I could just call up Jo-Jo.  Sigh.

Without Jo-Jo’s help, it was up to me alone and I think I found the perfect stool.  I am getting nothing for telling you this either.  I really, truly love Wayfair.  So, here’s my stool choice.


It’s from Wayfair (obviously) and it’s called “Akron Adjustable Height Bar Stool”.

I am so happy with my decision.  The tops of these stools are fairly rough and some reviewers complained about it, some said they even sanded them down a little.  Personally, I love the way the seats look, just like they are.  They have a rustic, old barn-wood feel about them.  Very cool… very cool.



Thanks for letting me share!

    What better way to start the day than pulling up a stool to your kitchen breakfast counter with the newspaper and a hot cup of coffee?
