Carissa did such an amazing job refreshing her kitchen seating with bar stools from Old Time Pottery. They fit perfectly into her farmhouse theme. Thank you for the inspiration, Carissa!

I have been super busy around here getting my house back to normal, and doing what I always love to do in the new year which is a REFRESH!! The new year is actually my favorite time to decorate because it allows me to get a fresh and new perspective of my home. This year, I was taking down my Christmas decor and looked around my kitchen and decided it was in need of a refresh. I wanted to change so much, but focused on 3 simple ways to refresh my kitchen. Let’s start with the before. It was pretty, but I wanted a new look that matched my modern farmhouse eating area without spending a lot of money.

New Barstools From Old Time Pottery

The first change that I wanted to make was getting new barstools. I bought my old ones at a yard sale after I moved in and really loved them, but it was time for a change. I decided to go to Old Time Pottery where the bar stool selection was amazing. They had bar stools for literally every style, but as soon as I spotted these grey fabric ones, I knew they were the ones. I loved the tufted details and black legs. They are also the softest barstools ever, just ask my kids! They are just so pretty and at such a reasonable price. I just love how well they complimented my kitchen.
