What if I told you that you don’t even have to have a breakfast nook to make the most out of a bar stool? That’s right! When it comes to decorating with bar stools, it’s about time we think outside of the bar (cheesy pun intended!). Here are five creative way to re-purpose bar stools for every room in your home!
As a side table to tie together your nook
Instantly transform a small space into a cozy reading nook by adding a bar stool next to your favorite seat. The perfect size for a cup of joe and your favorite read, a bar stool works as a small accent table that polishes off the look!
To keep your keys
Want a creative way to catch your keys as you walk in the door? Place a bar stool in the entryway with a decorative tray on top. This creates a can’t-miss catch all for your keys, phone charger, mail, and other odds-and-ends that you don’t want to forget as you go in and out of your home.
As a re-purposed plant stand
Take your floral arrangement to the next level by setting it atop a bar stool. Ideal for industrial designs, this quick-and-easy DIY project creates a stunning and chic decorative display!
To keep your towels tidy
Can’t quite find the room for a towel rack? Substitute a bar stool in its place. Style one beside the bathtub or just outside the shower to create an all-purpose holder for your towels and toiletries. This decorating hack keeps your towels plush and your beauty essentials from being waterlogged.
As a DIY desk
Create an innovative study area by using two bar stools as the base of a desk! The secret to pulling off this decorating hack is by laying a wood plank or large decorative tray across both bar stools. Perfect for studios and dorms, this space-saving hack captures the true meaning of dual-purpose decor.
