Chairs, Chairs, Chairs

I love this picture, not just because it is peaceful and beautiful but because I love the idea of using a chair as a bedside table.Chairs are one of the cheaper pieces of furniture out there when you are on a tight budget. Both of these pictures inspire me to rethink the position of the chairs in my house.
Have some chairs that need a little TLC? Maybe these before and afters will inspire you...


For cheap side chairs I have had great luck at at garage sales, antique shops and Ebay.

Another crazy day, I can't wait for the weekend and to catch up on my blog reading!

I'm using one as a nightstand in our guest room at the moment. I'm sort of a chair addict - I've had to stop myself from buying any more because I've completely run out of space!

I considered using a chair as a bedside table in our guest suite since space is really limited. I still think I might.

Take care during your very busy day! The weekend is just around the corner.

I'm a chair freak too. I had to part with a few before we moved, which was sad. And now I have a living room with my 3 favorites...and I'm not sure they really go together, but I can't part with them

I'm currently hunting for 2 chairs, but haven't found just the right ones yet.

I seem to be drawn to side chairs, but I have no more room for any of those beauties. Love At Home too, one of my fave stores to browse.
