A favorite of many is the Pottery Barn stool, as pictured below. Dusting the seat is easy. But dusting the legs and braces presents a different challenge. Bending over to do the legs and braces is difficult on the back and just plain difficult. As a result, you might not do a good job or you might just skip it and live with a dusty stool. Here's the trick: Put the stool (which you should have put pads on the feet anyhow) up on a table, and dusting the legs and braces becomes a snap.
