My obsession started after seeing gorgeous leather stools on Serena and Lily. I received several dowel rods from my Grandfather - so I was looking forward to using those, but since I needed two different sizes - I didn't have enough. We ended up purchasing poplar dowel rods from Home Depot (1" and 1.25")
On the ends, we added gold nailhead.
The gorgeous distressed leather is from The Leather Hide store - Nevada Distress. It's so so soft!

I've really been enjoying Eddie Ross' new book, Modern Mix. Not only is it filled with gorgeous images, but it's such a good read. Eddie is both entertaining and so knowledgeable! You MUST check it out if you haven't. I met Eddie last year at the BHG Stylemaker challenge and saw him again this year at the BHG Stylemaker event (still need to post my recap!) and he is so kind, genuine, and personable - you just want to be around him! Melissa Michaels' - The Inspired Room just came in the mail and I can't wait to dive into to - after quickly thumbing through it, I can't wait!
I didn't have time to post a full tutorial. It was a busy weekend - painting the bedroom, we're so close - one more coat! We also tore a part the kitchen to install the hardwood floors and planning the MBR closet redo (it's going to be amazing!!). That kinda snowballed when we figured we should paint the ceiling while we had the paint sprayer out. We're hoping to get the bedroom and closet done in the next few weeks so we can move back in.
Pillows from Motif Designs (love them)!!
If you are interested in a tutorial for the stools, let us know! We did use a drill press (without it, it would have been difficult to get the holes even and straight).
I hope you have a good week!! See you back Wednesday for the final #blogging101! :)
Thanks so much to The Leather Hide store for providing the leather for this project - as always, I only share companies that I've had a great experience with! Check out my leather tote tutorial here!
