When we planned our classroom makeovers, we headed straight to Amazon to see what kind of stools we could find. Our main goals were:
- Must be STURDY. Yes those little IKEA stools are cheap, but they don’t hold up very well, especially for older students.
- Must go with our design.
- Must be cute. Obviously.
When we found the colorful industrial stools on Amazon, we squealed a bit, then quickly ordered them in all our classroom colors! We ordered two sizes: 24 inch and 30 inch. 30 inches didn’t sound very tall…. it’s just a little over 2 feet, right?
You guys, Jessica and I have many skills in life. Math is not one of them.
A 30 inch stool is super tall! It’s tall for me, and I’m 5’5. When we put the 30 inch stools next to a school table raised as high as it would go, it just didn’t work.
So sad!!! Unfortunately, this is the tallest that a school table can get and 30 inch stools Will. Not. Work.
We came up with two solutions:
- Order 24 inch stools
- Order an extremely tall table to go with the 30 inch stools
For the first grade classrooms, we got 24 inch stools:
Here’s the 30 inch vs 24 inch:
