    Verified Purchase

    I use it as the stand for my small flower put by the hall way. Make sure you check the dimension because it is smaller than it appears in the picture as usual

  • elephant stool returned, without question
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    The Handcrafted Elephant Head Stool is well designed. The dimensions in particular are very good for our use - a stool to use for tying or untying shoes in our entryway.
