Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and Functional Love this little bee stool. Purchased for grandchildren and have ended up using for myself. Well Made. Good Price. Highly recommend July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my Bee Stand I had this sweet little stand on my wish list and ordered it last month during a BD promo. I love it! It is perfect as a quick step stool to grab that just-out-of reach book, setting down my cup of coffee when I am sitting on the floor sorting through papers and organizing, and it just adds that bit of whimsy to our home. The wood is darker brown than the picture online which looks more gray to me. I am delighted with this purchase! July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Perfect as a base for my copper water can. I stole this idea from another customer! April 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality So happy to have found Ballard Designs! My Bee stand is just as pictured and sturdy for its size. I have received many compliments because it is so cute and fun! Get one!!! April 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable and funtional I was very pleased when I pulled my bee stand out of the box. It is very sturdy, well made, and adorable all at the same time. I've used it as a step stool, as well as "drink stand" next to the sofa. I am so happy I purchased this!! March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This stool is of great quality. The bee stool is made of high quality material and is very sturdy. The carving is beautiful, and the dark stain is perfect for any room or color scheme. February 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! This little stool is just what my fireplace hearth needed. I can pull it out for a foot stool nearby. My granddaughter can perch on it whenever she visits. I have even used it as a low planter stand. February 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Practical, whimsical all in one Purchased this sweet little stool for my bathroom. Sturdy construction to stand up to the needs of my grandchildren in the bathroom, and a great place for me to sit and referee bath time. When not in use it's the perfect perch for reading material for the throne! The price is right and delivery was timely. You won't be disappointed. February 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I love my Bee Stand. It's perfect little stool, very sturdy. Great quality. February 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charming The bee stand is well made and is a fun addition to my living room. I love it so much that I gave my daughter and my grandaughter one. February 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with Bee stand; just wish the finish was lighter The bee stand is cute; it's obviously hand carved because I had purchased two them and one was better carved than the other, but they are both adorable and functional. The only real problem I have is the description says it has a driftwood finish, and the picture does look like it, but in actuality, the finish is a dark brown....but still nice; I didn't return them because they are really cute, but I just wish the finish was the lighter, driftwood color. February 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little piece I really like my little Bee Stand. I have it sitting next to the couch where I can put a drink on it while I am reading or watching TV. It is very versatile and well made. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone wanting a cute accessory piece. It is also very affordable. February 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great forever piece I have recently moved so, I've been in dozens of stores. These stools are very hot right now. What sets this one apart is the classic design and color. I was actually just looking at the piece a couple days ago, reviewing it's versatility. Drink holder/table, step stool, seating.... February 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by adorable! This item was back ordered and then delayed, but so worth the wait. Very nice quality, very sturdy, even better then I expected. Every time I look at it it makes me smile. February 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking stool Solid, well made stool. I love it. Was worth the 3 months wait. February 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Parisienne Shabby Chic This is a great step stool for me as I am considered petite in stature. I have always needed help in reaching the top shelves in my kitchen cabinets. Since my decor is Parisienne Shabby Chic, this stool was a perfect addition to my kitchen. It represents the royal insignia in Nepolean's reign. February 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delightful little stool Sturdy, warm and inviting. Attracts lots of compliments. I bought two when they were on sale and then bought one more later for full price. Many uses for this little guy. I would like to have one in each room just because I enjoy looking at it. February 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet Bee Stand Having my eye on this sweet little stand/stool for over a year, I finally decided I would find *some* place for it. It didn't hurt that I got it on sale either. ;) It's made well and is just as detailed and sweet as in the picture. I have set it on the floor in our great room by a long library table for now. The contrast of the two pieces of wood furniture is nice, and I like seeing it as I walk in the room. February 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is sturdy The bee stool is just perfect to use in my kitchen to reach for things in my cabinets. February 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by handy to have in the kitchen as well as being decorative Since I am vertically challenged reaching the top shelf of my cupboards is becoming more difficult as I age. I ordered the bee step stool because I thought it would add a dressed up look as well as being useful and so far I have been able to get those things that in the past have been unreachable. The stool is sturdy and the top is large enough to feel balanced when I step on it. It will also be useful when grandkids come to visit and we will be cooking together.. January 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value This was as described, a perfect (small) size for a powder room where little kids sometimes need help reaching the sink, and inexpensive. Had to wait a little for it, but happy with the purchase once it arrived. January 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bzzzz...perfect! Wonderful little stool! The perfect accent piece I was looking for and very sturdy as well. January 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful, although bee carving not as pronounced as pictured. I thoroughly enjoy the new bee stand. It's height is ideal for rocking in my chair in front of the fire. I have had several compliments on my stand already. Maybe due to photography lighting, the picture of the bee stand does not truly reflect the stand. The figure is not as pronounced as shown in magazine or on-line and is much darker. January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I love the bee stand. Very cute and sturdy. Just a fun little piece to have. I had to wait a couple of months to get it but it was worth the wait. January 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect little step stool. Perfect little step stool to reach the top shelves of my new kitchen cabinets. It's very sturdy. January 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great accent stand for the kitchen I love my little stand. It is not to large or high where I have to worry about finding a place for it. It fits nice and snug in the corner of the kitchen and is very useful for those slightly high places. The wood is very sturdy and the carved detail is really done well. Great choice and I am glad I waited for it!! January 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not exactly as pictured in catalog. Product is much darker than pictured in catalog. Also, I wanted it for a footstool which is not a use indicated in the catalog for the product. However, on the box it does say footstool. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality at a great price! I had to wait quite a while for this item, but it was well worth the wait. I bought it to use in my kitchen where I have 42" cabinets and always need to pull out a stool to put my dishes away. I'm excited to have something that I no longer have to hide. My bee stand sits proudly in the corner of my kitchen. LOVE IT!!!!! January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So cute and sturdy! Just a cute little stool to sit in the corner of our office in front of the book shelves. Tiny, but mighty! Can definitely be used as a step stool. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by such a perfect little filler love this stool in the corner of my kitchen. is a perfect little touch to warm the room up. plus it is really cute! January 18, 2013
