On the shopping list...

It's Friday... well, almost.  It has been a long week.  I have several things on my shopping list for this weekend but not sure I'll get any of them done.  In the mean time, I'm also thinking about new bar stools from the kitchen island.  I really HATE the stools that are there - the style, the swiveling, and the size.  Just all wrong for what I want in there.  We moved them to the basement for Jim's party last weekend and everything felt so much lighter.  So, I think I need something smaller scale and that doesn't swivel.  Other than that, I am at a total loss for which direction I want to go in.  I am scouring Craigslist daily but haven't stumbled on the right thing but I'm not losing hope just yet.

So, here are some options I'm considering (yes, I'm all over the place on this one!):
Overstock - $89 for the pair
Ebay - $255 for the pair
Ebay - $200 for the pairs

Bar Stool Super Center - $249 each
See?  Told you I was all over the place on this!  I was kind of hoping that someone will just show up with stools like with the console table!!!

I really do like the backless options (black wood or stainless) but will the kids have problems sitting on them?  I like that people can sit on them easily and face the kitchen or the family (and the TV) without having to swivel or pull them out or anything.  

Do you have backless bar stools?  Do your kids have any issues with them?
