  1. I have an old swiveling piano stool that I love so much! I’m using it as an end table now but maybe I’ll try the bathroom idea! Loved your article!

  6. I have always passed up the little stools because I couldn’t think of what to do with them. Well not anymore! I adore all of your ideas and each space or vignette is perfect. I seriously want to come and tour your home one day. Everything looks so charming. Thank you so much for joining in and sharing your treasures with us.

  7. You have such darling stools!!! You have styled them all so cute through your home!!!

  8. So fun and inspiring!! I have some ideas now for a couple small stools in my shop that, up til now, floated around with no purpose! Thank you!

  9. I love all the way you’ve used stools in your home, Lora! You are always creative and think outside of the box which is one of my favorite things about your posts. I always learn so much! I’m definitely going to be on the hunt for some so I can use them in my house too. Hugs and hope your Valentine’s Day is a special one, CoCo

  10. Lora, I just adore your style. The collection of stools with the clock is so adorable. My father used to make them and I need to dig them out now! Have a great weekend Lora!

  11. Hi Lora, you have a super cute collection of antique stools. I love all the ways you shared to use them. I love them in the kitchen as risers. And I definitely agree, can’t have too many and the piano stool is perfect in the bath. Happy Valentine’s weekend!

      Happy Valentine’s weekend to you, too, Debra!

    Stools, chairs- especially old kids chairs, can a girl ever have too many? Never ! 😊
    My hubby doesn’t quite get it, but he never complains if another one appears either.
    So fun to see your porch in this post Lora!
    Bright , cheery & springy ! Love it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, if another finds me, I won’t be sad;) I was happy to include some Spring pics; I’m so ready!

    Great piece, Lora, on when a stool’s not just a stool! I have a few of them and view them just as stools or, in some cases, a small stepping stone to reach something. Now, I’m going to use them as perches! Thanks, as always, for your vintage inspirations! Sandra

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you have a few, Sandra! And happy you’ll get to use them in new ways:)
