I then added a butcher block top to match the farmhouse sink counter unit. The piece will now become the center island, the drawers being the home for such things as silverware, foil & wrap, towels etc... All so cute, farmhousy, and wonderful... Except, where will little Russ & Jodi sit???
Have you seen the stools available out there for 1:12th scale dollhouses? Well, there are a bunch that look like milking stools for about $8. There are very retro looking metal soda shop ones for about $10. There are ones like grandma used to have, the seat folded up and it became a stepstool (my Grandma's was yellow) for $22. Then there are very detailed and expensive ones starting at about $30 and going up from there. This is EACH, and I need 2!
I have a nice stockpile of "someday this will come in handy" type items around my house. When I need to get creative, I must look like a mad genius! I run around the house opening drawers to grab and go through the contents. I take what might work and carry my plunder to the next honey hole. Eventually, usually, something will spark an idea and I'm off like a rocket!
I found this stool on the interwebs after doing a search on "farmhouse stools". Looks pretty straight forward, I think I can make this work!
