I have found that old milking stools are not only charming, but also are wonderful for taking the place of other pieces.
I love having a coffee table, but I really don't have the space for a conventional table. I do however have this sweet rustic milking stool and it serves as a little table without taking up too much real estate.
Also, with its handy holes in the top it is easy for me to move it over by my chair when I need a place to park my cup of tea.
I have a second milking stool in my bedroom. She is so pretty in pink.
I move this one around a lot too. Perfect in my bathroom to sit and put on makeup or next to my bedroom chair.
Small spaces can be challenging when it come to decorating and although I do use large pieces, it is nice that these little milking stools add to the decor.
