Because a chair found at the thrift store is an easy makeover with paint, we're on the fast track to having a chair collection. But not to worry, our chairs do more than just take up space...
A functional place for your keys and cell phone to land, a simple chair does the trick. Just add a tray and a hook and you've created a super simple landing strip. They're also great for storing items when not in use such as pillows, blankets and clothes (until we get a chance to put them away). Additionally, we like using our chairs for displaying home decor. Books, a table lamp, even a house plant atop a chair makes an attractive and eclectic looking spot. And while it may be unconventional to display artwork on chairs, we're digging the idea more and more.
