cool stools

I'm officially obsessed with circular stools that can double up as side tables. Obsessed! I want one as a side table for the sunroom/dining room, one as a stool for the hall and thinking maybe one as a bedside table for sophie's room which i can paint pink!
.
I completely love these retro ones below and ikea do a couple very similar - i would of course be hacking/customising the cheapy ikea ones.

all above via this is not ikea

Below are the budget Ikea ones. I'm currently thinking the first one and customise into two-tone by painting/staining the legs dark brown and the top white...

I love this post! I am stool poor.:) Any yard sale or thrift shop that has a stool, gets my money. I was just thinking yesterday that I need to have a sale and get rid of some of mine. There are just so many things you can do with them, and they fit just about anywhere. You always come up with really neat post, Biba. A nice escape to stop by and see you. Have a great day!

I'd like to add Kinetics stool to the list. Originally designed by a Canadian company. Now Haworth licenses them as the K700.

I have a set of three. See here: http://bit.ly/X6SXZ

I think the first Ikea one would look great finished as you said!
