Need a shelf? Why not use a chair? This is a fun idea for a summery entryway or in a casual bathroom for towels. And if you paint an old chair a bright color, you could use it as a way to introduce a breezy accent color — I love this turquoise!
I saw these chairs as shelves in the Dutch magazine vtwonen, and are inspired to try this at home. I've already amassed a few wobbly project-chairs that we can't sit on anyway, so this is a perfect use for them. I'd recommend hanging something like a chair onto coat hooks that are long and angle upwards so that the chair stays put — and to use a vintage chair with unique lines or a fun color. And then what an interesting focal spot to keep your keys, beach towels or mail!
