Bee Stand is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 294.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
