Rated 5 out of 5 by Super cute stool I didn't have purpose in mind. I just bought it because I loved the bee. I get a lot of compliments on it. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very unique I bought this for my sister and it was just so special! January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute & versatile bee stand! Even cuter than I thought! It's very sturdy also. I am using it as a footstool but it could have many uses. It's a keeper! January 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bee stand I purchased the bee stand stool in 12/2013. It arrived quickly. It is very cute. I did not have a problem with the stain. It is kept on a dark hardwood floor so I can not say what it may do to carpet. It may not be the best stool for children as it does topple if you stand to close to the edge. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, good-looking stool! I love this stool! It is darker than the picture depicts but I like how it looks better in person than in the picture. It sits as a decorative piece in my kitchen and is used quite often by my kids and me...very steady for a 5 year old to help me with cooking and also easily holds the weight of an adult to reach the top shelf of the cabinets. I am picky and particular about what I buy for my new kitchen. It is the perfect addition and serves a practical purpose as well. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Form & Function Combined Hopefully, Ballards reads these reviews and addresses issues that customers repeatedly bring up. It seems to be the case regarding this little stool. I delayed my purchase because others said the stain came off on everything. My stool does not have this problem. I wiped it off immediately in anticipation of this but nothing came off on my white cloth. The stool is just the right size to tuck out of the way or can be used decoratively and then grabbed to be put to work in reaching something. I will agree that it's darker than it appears in the photos and maybe a little less distressed. If that bothers you, you can distress it with a piece of sandpaper in a few minutes. I love it as is! December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and very sturdy! This little stool is a beautiful addition to any room! It's sturdy enough to be used as a step stool for things just out of reach. I love it and didn't have any problem with the color! November 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by why have a normal boring stool? Adds such a touch of class to the bathroom. We use it for the kiddies to reach the sink. November 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Perfect little conversation piece. Can be used as a small stool or on a buffet as a riser. Very versatile. Love it, love it, love it! October 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and Unique I read most of the reviews before purchasing. I haven't had any problems with the finish rubbing off and wiped it down when I got it out of the box with no noticible residue. To me it does seem a little darker than the picture. It doesn't bother me though. I think it would be fun to refinish it in a color but it is also great as-is! I got it for when my niece visits; she's a little helper. She loved it! At home her stool is plain so she seeemd to think it was pretty cute. I agree completely with that. It's a fun piece. Looks great pretty much anywhere and easy enough for her to drag it around; looks pretty cute by the fireplace but she used it to help with dishes and baking cookies in the kitchen. Small side note is that with how the legs are placed and the round top, when she stands on the very edge, it could topple over but she's 4-years-old so it's pretty easy for her to understand not to stand on the edge in such a way that it would do that. Very pleased! October 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee Stand Absolutely ADORABLE! sits next to my bed.....or my leather recliner. just the right size to tote around for any purpose. can stack my books that I am currently reading next to my bed or place a drink I might be having, next to my recliner. Even can bee used for my grandchildren for what ever they might need. Just love it!!! Thanks, Patti B October 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee Stand I love the bee stand. Presently it's stocked with magazines that I intend to read before they are totally outdated. Very happy with my purchase. October 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this stool! I love this little stool. I use it for my two grandchildren to stand on the wash their hands. They can easily pull it up and stand on it October 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Cute! Excellent quality & very cute - love it. I have a topiary sitting on it but is very versatile & can be used in many ways. October 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made accent piece! This stool adds alot of charactor to a small corner in my master bedroom. It has an artisian handmade look to it. Fantastic accent for any room. October 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by CUTE BUT OVER PRICED Hello, First let me share that Ballard Designs is a terrific shopping experience from start to finish. From the moment you hit the send key when ordering online you're kept informed. And right through to delivery and followup! Certainly they must give other companies lots of reasons to reevaluate their practices ~ their packing is unbelieveable!' However, this cute little stool does not measure up to their usual standards of product pricing and quality. At best it's discount and outlet quality but not pricing. Lotta dollars for a very little item. October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sturdy and no issues with the finish. This is a cute, sturdy little stool. The finish on mine is fine. Love it! October 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Deal! I, too, read the reviews before I ordered this cute little stool ~ and was ready to do battle with the over-staining. I took a soft white cloth and just rubbed the stool till the stain stopped staining the cloth. I can't imagine how it could do damage to anything now. It's a great little stool. I have it between my chair and the wood stove and use it for everything from my feet to my drink to books and magazines. The stain is more solid than shown and I actually like it better. . .not quite so busy! This is the first time I've ordered from Ballard Designs. I'm very impressed with their products offered and their customer service. October 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by L.O.V.E. THIS STAND!! This stool is so adorable and is very well made, I couldn't be happier! It is sturdy enough for my little kitchen helper to stand on. I included some photos because mine is a bit darker than Ballards photos. The bee pillow was from Ballard Designs as well. October 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee Stand I love my Bee Stand I use it for a footstool to get into my bed. It's very sturdy and the perfect size. September 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by very cute! I had already purchased the "bee" pillow and thought this would be a perfect addition to our den. September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 my Boys Delivered timely, item as described, I did not have the problems I had read of others with the stain coming off. I was ready to fix the problem but there was no need. Great solid built little stool. I will be purchasing a 2nd one soon. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's multi-functional! I placed this small stand on the hearth of my fireplace and placed a basket filled with plants on top. It fills the void in that area and added a great touch! There are more ways to utilize this little stand and I look forward to mixing it up. Before purchasing it I did read several reviews and they were helpful in determing my decision to purchase it. Thanks! September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute As Can "Bee" A beautiful little stand, carved and stained exceptionally well - currently holding pumpkins next to my fall floral display. A great little addition to anyone's decor. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arrive Exactly as Pictured I bought 2 of these to elevate 2 artificial decorative potted plants. They are the perfect height for this purpose. They are sturdy, interestingly carved & a really lovely addition to my decor. September 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by great I have had my eye on the bee stand for quite sometime. I thought the sale price was my reason to finally order it. I ordered one for a Christmas gift too. It is made well. The only thing that I might say is that the finish on it is a little too consistant. I might take some sandpaper to mine to make it look a little more worn, as shown in the picture. Other than that. I love it September 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect little stand This attractive little stand is perfect to place a drink next to a chair where no room for an end table. I had a brown glass top cut for the top to make it perfect! September 23, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as photographed Realizing that no single craftsperson creates the Bee Stand, nonetheless, the carving was not great and the bee very hard to distinguish. Ordered it for a Christmas present for a person who collects bees - I am wondering whether or not to gift it. Thank you. September 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This stand is just perfect This stand is just perfect for the space between 2 chairs in my living room. Tables were too high, and nothing else quite fit this well, especially the colors. It is visually pleasing and can be used on which to place drinks without coasters. Just perfect! September 19, 2013
