The Garden Seat

I've been lusting over the ceramic garden stools that I've been seeing in countless design magazines and catalogs recently. Here are a few of my inspiration pics-

via Decor Pad

via This Young House (one of my absolute fave blogs...check it out if you haven't already. I'm in love with the cute young, thrifty and creative couple.)

However, I couldn't find one within my limited budget.

The one above found here, rings in at $145.

The Pottery Barn version is even a bit more steep at $159.
Even the few I found at Home Goods/TJ Maxx, we're $80. I was beginning to give up...
until I was browsing through Old Time Pottery and found a whole bunch for

They were obviously fairly picked over but I still found a few in colors that would work.

Ultimately, I chose the one remaining green one.

It sits next to our love seat in our great room. We will be replacing our old furniture soon, and the stool (used as a small side table) will fit perfect between the 2 chairs that I have picked out to replace the love seat.

For those of you that may not have an Old Time Pottery close by (the closest one to me is 45 minutes away), I've heard rumors that Costco has a few for $40, still a good deal in comparison to everywhere else.

I love a bargain. This made my week:)

  1. Looks great! I love the one you chose! I'm a TYH fan too! :) I also got mine at TJ Maxx/Homegoods. It's in my entryway beside a chair. Perfect for keys/coffee mug when putting on shoes.
