I made it to the antique shop. I bought the willow stool , that I had my eye on before Christmas. It's made by a man here in Indiana. The shop owner could not give me a discount on it. She did deal with me on the rocking chair. :):)
I really like that this stool it is very sturdy. One could sit on it, although I planned to use it as a side table to the chair. with a small tray on top. The brick red is an accent color I like.
It's very lodge looking to me. I would one day like a sun room decorated in that style. So for now I will have a corner. The chair is still at the shop Ted will have to haul it in the truck. So I'll have to show you that later. I also wanted Ted to think about making little tables in this same style. Another good thing about this, if I get it all here together and later decide I do not like it....well there's always my daughter and SIL , who seems to have a woodsy look in their family room.
Wishing all a great day. XO
