Now that the Funny Little House is in Full Remodel Mode, we are looking for furniture that won't bust the budget. Because total-house makeovers are expensive!
So I was really happy when I found solid-wood bar stools from the local neighborhood junk shop for $25 each. I was even happier when I negotiated the price down a bit, to $20 per.

But the marks and the current color don't matter.
It also doesn't matter that pug butt sat on the stools today.

And helping them do that is worth way more than a paltry forty bucks.
