Of Stools and Stepladders July 7, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rhonwyyn @ 10:42 pm

After coming up empty in my search for a step stool at Linens ‘n Things and Home Depot yesterday, I visited Lowe’s today. When I finally found the correct aisle, I looked for the kind of stool I wanted.

Remember those round things librarians used to use years ago? Lowe’s didn’t have that kind, but they did have a variety of step stools. Unfortunately, the weight limits were low. The highest limit was 300 pounds, but it was a full-fledged step ladder, for which I have no room in my kitchen. The smaller step stools also had the lowest weight limit. At 255 pounds, my husband wouldn’t have been able to use those stools! What’s up with that?

    Have you checked out http://www.livingxl.com? They are pricy, yes, but if you want something that is made for us, it is worth the price. I bought one of their outdoor chairs and it is wonderful!

    I’ve been looking for a step stool to be able to reach the top of my cabinets, and one so that my 6’3″ husband who weighs about 260 can change the light bulbs since we have high ceiling. Well I haven’t had much luck. I don’t need a full ladder and I don’t need a huge step stool that I couldn’t put it anywhere out of the way either! So frustrating.
