There are some rules you follow, like finding the perfect height for your bar stool, and some you can break, like where bar stools can go.
It’s time to think beyond the bar and get creative with this fun and functional décor item in your home. For lots of fun ways to use a bar stool beyond the bar, I turned to some talented bloggers to help gather some inspiration for you.
A Stool as a Bedside Table
We love this repurposed stool turned bedside table from blogger Alicia at Thriftyandchic.com. She uses a black bar stool and some sisal to make a rustic and functional nightstand. Check out the full project here.
A Stool as a Plant Stand
Nothing gets lost in translation for this beautiful piano stool plant stand idea from Danish blogger Ronja at Nur Noch. The adjustable height of the piano stool makes this not only a versatile tool around the house, but allows you to adjust the plant in the sun too. Check out the full post here for more beautiful photos.
Additional Bathroom Storage with a Stool
Cut the legs off a stool to shorten it or make your own mini stool for easy bathroom storage like blogger Sara from Sincerely Sara D did here.
Don’t need your bar stools anymore? Why not turn them into something else by repurposing them, like this project incorporating two stools into a new desk. See the full "How To" here on Shanty2Chic.
Has this inspired you to think beyond the bar for the humble bar stool? Now, it's your turn to let your creative juices flow!
