I want to do the same thing…use my bar stools at a table. Looked and looked on-line for a 42” high table with no luck. Came across another post and Ramona shared this link:

I've seen it done in a few homes recently.

jn3344, did you like it? Any thoughts?

I can’t have both a bar and dining table in my downsize. Everyone loves to sit at the bar when they visit and I don’t do formal entertaining any more…everything is pretty casual.

Yes, JudyG that's exactly the way people were using the taller table. Sort of a café look, or casual bar setting. One home had a beautiful huge kitchen all done in white with dark wood floors and RH style fixtures and hardware. Where you would normally think would be a traditional dining room, they had made it up with a large high table and 6 barstools. It almost looked like an extension of the island.

Another one was in a very open and light kitchen. It was smaller and where you might think of putting a breakfast nook they had a round café-style table with four barstools.

I liked it because it gave a more casual appearance. If people were sitting at them, they were on the same level as those working in the kitchen. Almost like a bar at the island for that effect, but with some separation.

So you are going to somehow cut these two down to normal table height?

Many dining room set ups have different arm chairs at the head of the table, then they have side chairs. So it could work if you got the right side chairs. Tricky, though!

Good luck!

Ohk.. yes that's a good idea that I use these two as the end /host-hostess chairs.. and get 6 regular dining chairs or
will it be ok/better if I buy 6 bar chairs-maybe shorter than these two and use them instead of the regular dining chairs

I don’t think that will work…the shorter stool (26”) will be counter height and not dining chair height (18”).

Are the stools can be adjustable?
