When you buy the wrong thing

Another fear of mine is not taking design risks because I’m scared of buying the wrong thing. (Wrong in scale, colour etc.)

Case in point: These vintage bar stools. ($20)


When I bought them I was worried they were too retro, but worth taking a chance on. Instead, they were just wrong for the purpose.

I’m looking for island height stools and, alas, this is the SECOND time I bought bar height ones. (I know what you’re thinking: Carly, buy a f*cking measuring tape already!)

So these are super fun old school bar stools and I don’t think we have a place for them.

Maybe they can be some back up chairs for when we have guests over? Maybe I’ll have to give them away? We’ll see.
