I am a serial faffer. I’ve held my hands up, I admit it. There is nothing I love more than spending the day pottering around the house, moving things around. You can ask Kane; I’ve rearranged the bedroom, dining room and conservatory recently, and I’m forever moving the decor around to give the place a fresh look. Cheaper than re-decorating, right? If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed.
So for that reason, I love multi-purpose items. Anything that can be styled differently or used in different rooms is a-okay with me. Today I’m teaming up with PIB, styling one of their wooden stools in three ways. It’s a gorgeous, scandi inspired piece that I think would work well in so many styles of decor. I don’t have any ground-breaking ways to use the stool, but here’s the three ways I’ve styled it.
The Plant Stand
I have a fair few plants (over 50, last time I counted), which means that quite a few pieces of my furniture end up as homes for them. Being a nice large piece, the stool did originally have my massive monstera deliciosa sat on it, but I’ve decided on a smaller snake plant instead. Usually I might put a few books underneath but I like the texture this adds.
The Side Table
It might seem a bit high as a side table, but for the ultimate lazy person (ie, me), it’s perfect. With a smaller side table, I would have to get up off the sofa to put my drink down on the side. Here I can simply reach out and stick my cup down! It has a nice large seat to put a few items on, and the wood is a similar shade to the legs of my sofa, so it works surprisingly well here.
The Bar Stool
I told you this wouldn’t be ground-breaking. But for me, it’s just great to have such a versatile piece I can move around the house whenever the mood hits. I really like the oak against the grey kitchen and patterned tiles, and I’ve kept the sheepskin pad on to keep a bit of comfort.
Are you a serial faffer, too? How would you style this stool? Let me know in the comments!
