5 ways to use the Ikea Bekvam step stool

You know how the other day I showed you my Ikea Bekvam step stool hack ? Well, today I’m posting 5 ways to use the Ikea Bekvam step stool, other than the two I showed in my first post.

I know, it is what it is, a step stool, so if you need to reach something real high, well, this one comes in very handy! But since I prettied it up a bit, I kinda like to decorate with it, while I’m not using it to get to my high kitchen cabinets and such. I like it that much now! 

5 ways to use the Ikea Bekvam step stool:

  1. As a book & magazine shelf

It looks nice and put next to my armchair or sofa I can always have my favourite book or magazine handy!

      2. As a flower & plant stand

I think, it’s perfect to have beside a window filled with little succulents and plants.

A special spot for my favourite kind of art.

A spot where to leave my purse or handbag easily.

Ok, I can’t decide where I like it most! I might have to run out and get some more of these! Which one is your favourite spot for the Bekvam step stool?? Or do you actually prefer using it as a step stool and keeping it clear, which is totally ok as well!

I hope you liked these ideas, as always, I’m so happy that you stopped by! Thanks for that!

    I love how you’ve totally looked outside the box with this and repurposed it into something useful and pretty each time (and you could still use it for steps in an emergency!) Leanne @ cresting the hill

    This is darling, Katrin! I love the paint job {gold!} Thank you for sharing all the different ideas on how to use/style it. My fav was the bookshelf and art display!

    Hi there friend…I can’t decide where I like it best! It really does look great in your bathroom, but like it displaying all your art as well. Hmmm…decisions, decisions. The good thing is that you can switch up your environment as often as you want with it. What a fun decor accessory.
    Wishing you an awesome Wednesday!

    Hugs, Lynn

    Katrin, The step stool is beautiful! I love the different ways that you styled and used it. I agree that I would use it more as a decor item. Love the plant display and the catch-all for purse and keys! Thanks for sharing with us at Brag About It! Pinned and tweeted 🙂

      26/04/2016 at 18:52

      Thanks so much! Yes, as a plant stand I love it as well! I think I’ll rotate weekly or something 😉

    I think you definitely need to go get more because I love all the variations you did! I think the plant display might be my favorite. #MotivationalMondays

      Hi Candace! Yes, I like how the plants look on it too! They are so cheap, I might get another one for outside maybe! Have a great day!

    • Katrin

    Ooooh, I love it next to the door as a little table/catch all. So cute! The gold glams it up a bit too. Great ideas and reminds me I need to think outside the box more! I’m so glad you linked up this week to Dishing It & Digging It!

    • Katrin

    These are great ways to take an everyday item and transform it into an even more functional piece! Love what your creative mind and artistic talents produce. I have to get this stool to replace my old metal one, although I’m not sure it will look as wonderful as yours. Thank-you!
