Kit Turns Keg Into Stool

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Even after drinking an entire keg of beer, it’s still possible to be sitting pretty.

P&P Imports’ latest boozy product is The Keg Stool, a kit that transforms a keg shell into a stylish, comfy, fully- functional bar stool.

By attaching a footrest, vinyl swivel top, and sturdy hardware, a standard keg instantly becomes a sweet seat.

CU-Boulder alum Peter Engler tapped into his own partying habits to co-create the product.

After having tons of empty kegs lying around, he was inspired to design “the ultimate recycling program.”

He thinks the Keg Stool is perfect for unique bars, frat houses, or man caves.

While it works on full shells, one can’t drink from the keg once the stool is attached. It’s probably best to use an empty keg anyway so no brew goes to waste.

And though installation is simple, Engler advises sleeping off that buzz from finishing the keg before attempting handiwork on it.
