While it's smaller than I thought it would be [I should paid more attention to the details] it is beautifully crafted and very sturdy. It is a wonderful foot stool. If looking for functionality, it's too short to sit on, but perfect for giving that added height to tie your shoes. If you're looking for a decorative piece that is unique and well made, this is perfect! I love the detail.Read More
When i got the stool it was much smaller than I thought it would be. More of a footstool. The craftanship was poor and it was not finished the way a piece of furniture should be, such as rough edges and messy paint job. And, it was just plain Ugly to me. Overstock let me return it without and hassle or questions about it.Read More
