I purchased this stool for my bathroom vanity. It said it wass 19 inches but in fact it is only barely 18. Since I really like it and it matches the cabinets in our bathroom I am going to have casters put on it to make it high enough to reach the granite counter. It is very low. Wish me luck!! I am just concerned that the narrow legs will split when being drilled. We have given it to someone with a drill press.
