Go ahead...go wild. these are fun and functional I love them. The quality is pretty good, they are roomier than i anticipated, and much sturdier. The smaller version comes with the legs off so you just need to screw them in place. Easy as pie, I needed a bed stool to get up on my bed and couldn't find anything that i liked, so i left the legs off of one of them (for stability) and it works like a charm. They were perfect in my wildly elegant style new bedroom. I love them. Let loose!
