Brent acquiesced that the $89 chef's prep table would, at the very least, make a good base for a butcher block top down the road, and it still has the bottom shelf, but with a much airier feel than our past island AND with a smaller footprint (24" x 36"). We might even be able to use a piece of Ikea's oak countertops for the top.
Here are the top contenders for stools:
IMPORTANT - I got a 20% off coupon in the mail, but expires 8/26...
$179 each before the coupon.
Also $179 each, and with wood top, but NOT adjustable seat height.
|The most pricey at $229 - but I do have a 15% off coupon...and they have rave reviews, |
but no wood top.
Also the wood top - here with slightly curvy legs
$137 a piece, interesting lines
$104 each below - all metal though. The simple lines are attractive though.
Pottery Barn - only $149, but I think they look kind of...fat...also, no wood...
|$152.15 each - on sale - great lines, but no wood...|
We are also realizing that we will need a readily available step stool with all of our very high cabinets :)
This one is nice because it folds so flatly - and only $47 at Amazon!
Let me know if you find any other great options for a foldable step stool...
My goal is to go check out the stools we can in person this weekend...between hanging more cabinets and making the bottoms to hide the under-cabinet lighting...
