Thoughts All?


Came across this on Craigs List and it gave me pause.  I think I like the console.  The stools would need to be changed but, get this, all three pieces for $100.  If nothing else, I can do something with them.   They are teetering between really kinda cool, and just bad taste.  What's your take?  Pass?  I'm really on the fence. 

My hubby is coming in town permanently tonight.  Yay!  It will be so nice to be able to have a home that we won't be moving from for a very long time.  I can finally plant roots so to speak.  All good things.  He will be seeing the house for the first time tomorrow.  Hope he likes it.  And, I also hope all of you have a wonderful FALL weekend.  I LOVE it!!!

Okay, call me crazy, but I totally love it. The print looks something like it's marbled/feathered, is that right?

You, of all people Nichole, can make this set work (especially if you change the fabric on the ottomans). Go for it!

I say it's a total GO. That console is amazing and once you redid the stools it would be an excellent mix of styles. Do it! If we lived in the same town I would buy it :) --Sarah

I think they are fascinating in a creative - "I can do something with those" way! You'll do something amazing with them, I'm sure!

I'm with you on this -- I could like the console if it was the one standout piece on its own. The stools would need to be recovered (maybe a bright white) and the accessories on the console would need to be simple -- whites, maybe some gold, a big mirror.

Go for it! That console is fab... all together it is a bit mushy, but I agree with the others, that if you changed up the stools, it could look great.

Yes! I saw one at a thrift store and they wanted $250 so I had to pass. There are so many possiblities here! Do it! Then blog it of course:)

Oh I LOVE them! Together it's to much but they could be a show stopper! Really really unique! YOur hubby is going to love the place, such a ball of talent you are :)

So check out the blog nest egg, she did a post a few weeks ago about a gorgeous home she was redoing, and those exact ottomans were on there (obviously she was going to refinish hers also). I immediately thought of them and was jealous of your find. GET THEM!!!

Worth it just for the console! The stools are a little iffy but I can't really decide if it's because its too much of that pattern or the shape of them.
