Pull up a chair ...

Not every chair is a seat. Chairs with great bones often reincarnate into artistic and useful functions beyond a derriere parking spot.

You would think chairs grow on trees from the art currently on exhibit at the San Antonio Botanical Garden (above).


Hang interesting chairs on a wall to serve as bookshelves, clothes storage or an attention-grabbing ledge for display. Images via Bright Bold Beautiful.

Deconstruct an old chair and retain the ladder back and a portion of the seat to use as towel bars and storage. Brilliant! Photo from The Fun Times Guide.

Not motivated to be crafty? At least give that chair something to do when its not hosting friends at your dinner party. Max Attenborough photographed a bedside companion for books and accessories (above).

Now, I'll have to get those wood folding chairs out of storage and find a useful purpose for them. This will require some time under my thinking cap!
