Breakfast Bar



One of the things I love most about our kitchen is the new quasi-island breakfast bar in the center of the kitchen and dining room.

When CSN Stores contacted me about doing a product review, we were blessed with an opportunity to not only do a product review but also host a giveaway for you! Today, I'll be sharing with you our review of our new breakfast bar stools!!  Coming this week, I'll be offering a giveaway for goodies like an Ice Cream Maker and bakeware from Le Crueset!!


Frog Prince and I placed our order for the Derby Wheat Back Bar Stools {in Cappuccino} from CSN Stores on the 28th; our order was shipped on March 2 and the chairs arrived on March 4!  Talk about a fast turn around.  We were impressed.

First up: Taking them out of the box.


Within a few minutes, we had all the parts laid out on our living room floor.


Everything was there, unscratched/undamaged, and we were excited. We thought we'd need to dig out our power screw driver to assemble the chairs, but everything we needed was right in the box.


The Allen wrench worked wonderfully to assemble the chairs. We used a Phillips head screwdriver too, for the other longer screws.


Within an hour, we had the seat pads fastened to the chairs and sitting in our kitchen!  For two newbies to this home ownership thing, and for our first shot at assembling furniture we were pleased with the process.


And, our green carpentry skills didn't have any influence on the outcome -- these chairs are sturdy as can be!

In fact, I've hardly moved from these chairs ...


And, we had a blast breaking them in with our friends who stayed with us last week.


They are perfect for breakfast, for lunch and dinner too, and add a great opportunity to have conversation in our kitchen.


We ordered the counter top height and they fit perfectly under our counter top.

The chair pads are soft to sit on, and the cappiccino finish is rich and very nicely finished.


We love the backs - they are quite comfortable to lean against and don't rub on your spine uncomfortably like some chair backs do!

All in all - we love them.  It was a bit nerve-wracking to shop for chairs online without being able to see them in the store or even sit on them before they arrived in our house, but CSN Stores made the process easy.  The product reviews online for these chairs said good things, so we were convinced.  

We highly recommend CSN stores and thank them for this opportunity to review the Wildon Home Bar Stools for our kitchen.

Check back next week for your chance to win an ice cream maker and bakeware from Le Creuset courtesy of CSN Stores!!
