Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built little foot stool. I love the carved details and have received several compliments. Unique, well built and adorable little foot stool. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great addition to any room! I love this little stool! Right out of the box, it was adorable. I have had many comments on it. I see it finding many spaces around my house. Right now it's sitting next to the love seat - a perfect place for my handbag when I walk in the door. Too cute!! September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for kids and adults, alike We use it in our powder room for our toddlers to access the sink to wash hands, but it's not your typical juvenile step stool, so it still looks sophisticated enough for (adult) guests. September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful, well built Everyone who has seen this has loved it. I bought it to help my dog get up on the sofa as he can no longer jump up on his own. believe it or not this has an honored place in our home on it's own! September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is sturdy, stable, and great looking. Just what I needed. I don't like getting my little folding stepladder out all the time. The little Bee is a decorative, safe way to keep me in touch with things that are a bit out of my reach. I love it! September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So beautiful This little stool is sitting in my LR as you come down the step and fills a hole behind a chair tuned at an angle. Daily when I walk past it I think is is like a visual painting. It is not some ordinary wooden stool but a beautiful wooden stool with a beautiful carved bee. Recommend this highly. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is so cute! I don't think there was anything in the description of this stool that said you could stand on it, so I'm sure I'm not supposed to, but I ordered it for a little boost to reach the top shelves in my pantry. It's very sturdy, and doesn't take up much room. And the bee design, as I stated previously, is so cute. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little stool for the money, sturdy for standing upon. I use my bee stand for getting to the upper cabinets of my house, everything that's just out of reach. Its sturdy, strong and beautiful. I like it so much I have one on both levels of my house. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So handy and worth every penny. This Bee Stand is everything I had hoped for. It is a perfect item for so many uses! I bought it to reach the back of the top shelf in my pantry. Works wonders for that but is so easy to move around I have used it to sit on, set a drink on and as a footstool. It's even perfect for just sitting there and being decoration in my living room. This stool has lived up to my expectation. Some reviewers said it had a stain that would need to be wiped down or that rubbed off. This has NOT been my experience. The workmanship is quite nice and I would buy another for a gift. September 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall features This product is cute and useful, well made, sturdy. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This bee stand is very well made and heavy. Very attractive. I have been looking at this little stool for about three years or more and finally decided to buy it. It arrived quickly, packed very well,with no assembly required. It's very charming! It adds just a touch of nostalgia and serves different uses in my living room. I have dark hardwood floors and the stool looks very nice with my decor. I've received many compliments and they want to know where I purchased it. Thank you Ballard Design, I love your products! September 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute Little Foot Stool I am so happy with this purchase that I had been eyeing for a couple years! I use it as a step stool in my kitchen to reach some of my higher shelves in my cabinets and it's sturdy and practical along with being adorable. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WELL MADE This Bee stand is incredibly well made and sturdy. I always expect the very best from Ballard but this far, far exceeded my expectations. Beautifully crafted wood, I just adore this little stool. No regrets at all and I recommend it to anyone who loves the unique. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutest Stool Ever! I love this stool so much, I bought a second one. I'm 5'2" and I use it often to get things from the higher shelves in the house. It's small, but useful! And I love the bee design! August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Darling and Functional Just opened my shipment and I love the BEE STOOL! It is darker than pictured...the legs are more solid in color with a black stain. The top of the stool is lighter, but more brown than shown. The carved bee is quite detailed. It will be next to my living room sofa to hold my coffee, but I see my grand daughters pulling it into the kitchen to get up onto the counter...their favorite place to gather! BEE HAPPY! August 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice stool, but black stain rubs off Overall happy with this purchase despite having the same issue that other reviewers noted about the black stain rubbing off. The stain isn't sealed on the legs of the stool, so when handled it does rub of a bit on hands and clothes. I used Old English to clean the entire stool (the cloth was black with stain after I finished), and am hoping that will help some of the issue. But since the legs aren't sealed, this will continue until the stain is able to soak completely into the wood. In the meantime it's not a huge issue for me. Otherwise the stool is sturdy and looks great next to my fireplace. Anticipate this will hold a straw kindling basket or copper tub once winter time rolls around and we're using our fireplace daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Bee Stool Love it. I bought a total of 4 over the last year. August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute as can BEE I have been watching and waiting for this stool to go on sale..... And when it did I ordered it immediately. One of the best purchases I have made. June 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This little stand is perfect The stand is perfect next to my chair in my living room. It is exactly what I wanted. It did not have the black finishing issue that others have described. April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it !! I have looked at this little stool forever in the catalog and finally decided to purchase it. I just love it. Place it anywhere, use it for so many things. Decided to keep it on my list of special gifts for friends and family. April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can perfection really Bee? I love everything about the bee stand. I was pleasingly surprised at the high quality. The finish is flawless and it is the perfect height to hold a glass of wine next to the sofa. I probably will purchase another! March 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by More "primitive" than I thought. I do like this stool. It is so much nicer than the plastic one from the hardware store. I did not have any problems with the finish like some of the previous reviews. However, the carving is a bit more rustic or primitive than I thought it would be. It is a almost hard to tell it's a bee in a way. But it is still nice and I'm glad I have it! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy Style I love this little bee stool. The design is unique, and the construction is great. It's a lot sturdier than I anticipated. Although it's not made for standing on, it will hold some weight, and looks wonderful as an interest piece that also happens to have purpose. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little stand I bought this to put a plant on . It could be used so many different ways…almost hate to cover up the bee on top because it looks awesome. Well made, versatile, and well-priced. It you're thinking about it, definitely order it. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Great footstool as well as an accent piece. Great value! March 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Exactly as it looks online. Cute as a bug...I mean bee :) Put it in my kitchen to reach the top shelves of the cupboards, handier than opening the step stool that I keep in the broom closet. March 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by just like the photo Right now my Betta is living on it but I know I'll find lots of uses for it. I like it's uniqueness and rustic finish. February 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charming Bee Stand I love, love, love my bee stand. It just makes me feel so happy when I look at it; the beautiful wood stain color, the bee carved on the top of the stand, and the overall shape and size of the stand just create a presence that gives me a warm feeling inside, and not to forget to mention the room it is in looks and feels warm too. I have found a wonderful place for it in an upstairs bathroom sitting right next to a framed Jack Russell dog which sits on a wooden easel on the floor. They look great together. Thank you Ballard Designs. February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and sturdy. As my husband is a beekeeper, I try to promote bees. I purchased this stool for our newest granddaughter so she can sit on it in her room or stand on it in the bathroom. It is cute, functional and sturdy. February 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! This little stool just arrived in the mail and I couldn't be more delighted. I bought it for my small kitchen, as I needed a little boost to reach the higher shelves. Stylish and none of the varnish issues mentioned by other reviewers. Also, love the bee motif; I'm happiest buzzing around busily in the kitchen. January 24, 2014
