Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy little stool Love this little stool. It is solid enough for little ones to crawl on and around and just looks great. No paint/stain rubbing off like mentioned in other reviews. September 18, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cute, sturdy stool but not like photo. Have looked at this stool to purchase before, now got 2 since they were on sale. Very happy that I read the reviews before I got them. The stool does not have the patina as the one in the picture. There was a heavy black stain on the legs and sides of the top, rubbed off easily and even sticky in spots. Having read the reviews I was ready with my paint thinner and went over the stool a few times. I think I will need to do that a few more to get the look of the photo and so it does not rub off. Also note, that the bee carving will not look like "exactly" like the photo, but will be similar September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these! I have a very high bed (three mattresses) and use these bee stands as stepping next to the bed. They are the perfect size, height, and weight! Very cute and functional! And $35!!! Really! September 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT! I had been looking for a 'stool' for my grandkids to use to reach sinks, etc. I ordered the 'Bee Stand' and I LOVE it! It is just the right size for them and it does not look out of place wherever it is! In fact, it makes a statement to any room. September 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This stand is functional and sturdy! I recently purchased this bee stand and I use it in my kitchen as a step stool and my son(5 yrs) steals it constantly to sit on in our family room. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a stool who doesn't necessarily want a traditional stand/stool. September 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great value and a really cute addition to any space. I read the reviews and think this is an excellent product and a super deal. In specialty stores a product like this could be quite expensive. Thanks Ballard for the terrific offerings! September 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I got what I wanted. It didn't stain my hands or carpet as many customers complained. Right now I'm using it in my living room as a plant stand. September 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and stylish I love this stool! It is very strong and the design is very stylish. September 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute as a bee looks so cute sitting in the corner. used by kids to reach kitchen counters. sturdy and strong. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I first saw this in a Ballard catalog from 8 months ago. I immediately tore out the page and put it in the folder I keep for Christmas present ideas for family and for myself. But then it disappeared from future catalogs for the next six months. When it reappeared, the price was reduced and it was a featured item. I ordered two! One for my twin sister and one for me. Her husband calls us the Queen Bees. The bee on top of the stool made it a perfect present. The Bee Stand is solid wood, sturdy, maybe 9 inches tall. The bee design is deeply carved and very cool. I put floor protector pads on the bottom of each leg of the stand. Don't want any scratches on my hardwood floors. Even though I am tall, I still need a little assistance to reach the topmost cabinets in the kitchen. The Bee Stand is perfect and looks so good I can leave it out. Unlike a stepladder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Special little something Good quality. It is that little touch of HOME that adds so much. That is what this Bee Stool/Stand does. I LOVE it! September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this little stool. I ordered this little stool as a gift for a friend, but loved it so much I had to order one for myself. It is the perfect size and the bee is just enough, not overpowering. It is exactly what I was looking for! August 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sturdy but with finishing flaws.. This stool is very sturdy and the design is well made. However, I am glad that I reviewed the product before I purchased this. The manufacturer has way too much black finish on it and it easily rubs off on hands and clothes as soon as you remove it from the box. After looking at this, I put paint thinner on a rag and wiped off much of the excess finish and now it has a nice patina on it. I would strongly recommend this process to prevent stain damage. August 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Darker than pictured but still very charming! Get your gloves and some sandpaper if you want your little Bee Stool to look like the one in photo. It is absolutely adorable but arrives much darker than what you see in the picture. The stain they used also comes off on your hands, carpet, etc. I'm glad I read the reviews on this product before I purchased it. I was prepared when I opened the box that I was going to get stain on my hands. The first thing I did was give it a bath in my sink with dish soap. Then I let it dry and began sanding. I think I'll add a little gray wash to it to give it that grey driftwood look. Very sturdy! August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adorable little stool I bought this when it was on BHB sometime last year. We absolutely love it in our little family! This is my daughter's go-to step stool. It's just the right size for her little hands and gets her to the perfect height for the counters and sink. They're handmade so every carving is slightly different. The stain did come off on the wall where it rubbed up a bit but I've had no trouble on the carpets. I can see where you may want to add a finish to the stool if this may be a problem. Otherwise, it's held up well for all of us. I highly recommend it!! August 1, 2013
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
