What would you call this?

I found this chair at the thrift store today for $3. I felt a little bad because my sister wanted it as well. There was another one there that I tried to convince her was better because dad had one of these when we were little. She decided her hubby could fix that one up and I could have the yellow one. She calls it a step stool chair. I tend to agree with that. My husband calls it a boot chair because his dad used to sit in it to put his boots on or use the steps to take them off. William calls it the most uncomfortable chair in the kitchen. He also thought it could be a barber chair. I just call it mine!

What would you call it?


  1. Vintage Step Stool. We have one we rescued from the garbage pile and LOVE it. Ours is yellow too. We keep it on the back enclosed porch. The cats sit it on it more than we use it. Google "vintage step stool".

  2. I call it a step stool chair. We have one in our garage that I love. We don't use it that often, but I will never get rid of it. Mine is orange/red color

  3. Wow, I don't know what you call it, but I would think it is a step stool...It is awesome!!!


  4. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this but I would call it a fantastic vintage retro find!!!

  5. We used to have a stool like this when I was growing up - I claimed this one as soon as I found it one day at a garage sale. Love it!
