Peek a boo in the kitchen!

You all know how much I love lucite. Normally I'm blogging about my lucite woes, because Jon hates it and I sadly thought I could sneak some of it into the house, but when ghost chair:

There version comes in at $135

I toyed with the idea of using it as a desk chair, but I wasn't sure about how comfy it would be so I went with this instead:

I love them! Plus instead of only a little bit of lucite I got an impact of lucite with two ghost stools!

It took forever to take that picture above, because this kept happening:

Those are three dogs peeking in the picture! Anyone else have little helpers like me while they work from home?

If you are in the Chicago area then you have an additional perk to they have an outlet center for in store pick up only. My stools are currently in there:

The pair is available for $77!

outlet center had many more finds that I wanted. All of you in Chicago are lucky people!

They look great! I was *this close* to getting those for our kitchen but decided on some draftsman stools from Wisteria instead. Are you going to put cushions on them like that Anna Kohler gal from the fabulous Renovation Style magazine article?

This is crazy. I almost just had a panic attack because I just bought black Victoria chairs from Kartell for 330.00, yikes. Good thing the black ones I just saw on your link don't ship across the country. Now I don't feel as bad. Great find!!!
