I have this thing that I like to refer to as designer ADD. I don't know if it's real or not but it's when you find something you like and then purchase it but fall in love with something else a few months later.
Case in point: my barstools…
I bought these guys back in April after a very long search:
They've served us well (even though I can count the number of times they've been sat on on one hand) and while I liked them when we first got them, the honeymoon phase is over and I've moved on to something else.
The "something else" would be Target's Lewiston bar stools:

I spotted them on Instagram about a week ago and haven't been able to get them out of my mind. I went and checked them out on Saturday and fell in love! Insert crappy iPhone photo in 3...2...
They're so sturdy and look much more expensive than they actually are ($74.99/each)! To make sure that this was love and not just lust, I quickly Photoshopped them into our kitchen to see how they'd look:
I was worried that the swivel part of the stool would cause the seat to become wobbily when it was fully raised but it has this awesome lock-in feature (no idea if that's the technical term) where the seat stops spinning and kind of "locks" in place once it reaches it's full height. I sat on the stool and wiggled back and forth trying to get the seat to wobble or tip but it didn't budge! I took my boyfriend to see them last night because he's a bit of a stickler on how things function and they passed his test with flying colors :)
I'm ready to move on from my current barstools so I put them on Craigslist and am patiently waiting for someone to come get them so I can put that money towards these new ones! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
In the meantime, here's a comparison of our current barstools:
Anddd our hope-to-be new barstools:
What do you think? Do you love them as much as I do? Do you suffer from designer ADD?
