VEery nice barstools. so sad they are too tall and probably cost more to send back. Beautifully crafted and top stitched real leather. for the $$ they are incredible. I plan on just going ahead and buy two more shorter ones during black n blue thursday or friday. The measure was my fault. thought I picked the right one..... the free shipping takes the cake. these sell for *** each other places. wood is good. one thing...it would be nice to send extra wood dowels cuz i accidentally sat on it before securing everything to check size, as i was anxious...and dang...broke two. now gotta dig dowel out and replace. my bad.
