    πŸ™‚ I am so happy you love them as much as me!!!! πŸ™‚

    I have a couple stools in my classroom at my centers. But sadly they are falling apart. They are obviously not as good as these babies. I am going to have to check them out because I too like how they are clutter free. Hey we need all the space we can get right!?

    I have stool almost like that but I got them at IKEA and my 5th graders LOVE them. They were only $5.99 each. They have black, white, and one more color (but I can't think of it now).

    Now that the two of you have these, I am drooling over them even more. I want these for next year. I have tables also and I like the idea of them being easy to move around. I have 3rd graders and I am glad to know they will work.

    Thank you for the review!

    Just bought 6 of these in an awesome teal blue at Ikea this weekend!

  6. These are awesome and I wish I could buy them for my class but we get harped on if we try to get rid of the old furniture to make way for new. So sadly it is the ugly blue plastic seating for my room.

    Looks like I will be looking into some new stools πŸ™‚ The cube storage boxes I bought last summer get in the way and these can be stacked and put in the corner at the end of the day. Win, win πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing, Kristen πŸ™‚

    I ordered a set of 5 after I read about them from The Teeny Tiny Teacher and we love them! They are so light, my 2nd graders can move them anywhere in our classroom. LOVE them!

    Love my Ikea stools. Just like previous people stated, they are $5.99 at Ikea. I got orange and black two years ago (our school colors) but they have the loveliest teal right now. They hold up beautifully. =)

  12. Oh! I have never thought about stools but I love this simple alternative.

    I love the stools! I will have to look into them! I am going to be teaching 5th grade this year! πŸ™‚ Also, where did you get your adorable chevron rug??? I LOVE IT!!!

  14. Amber Unger says:

    I agree – stools like yours have many benefits! I have a pink one that I picked up on sale at JoAnn Fabrics, and I wish I had bought more. I have gone back to snag more, but they haven't carried them since…bummer! I searched for a picture of mine, but I was only able to see it in the 25th (yes, the 25th, sorry) picture in this post:

    How cute! I just found them in all different colors, too. I am thinking about getting them for our library next year. Do you think they could withstand that much use?

    OMG! I have to tell you that I don't have these stools but some other older ones that look very similar to these. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE. I use them at my guided reading/ small group table. My fave part is that they tuck under my table to stack easily!

    However, mine are old now and pretty abused. Don't get me wrong they are holding up well, but they don't match and yours are MUCH cuter. Sooooo I think I will copy you and switch!

    Thanks for the inspiration lv.
