We have all had an odd chair in our lives at some point. You know the one that was past down by your great grandmother, aunt or mother-in-law or you picked it up at a flea market because something about it spoke to you. Maybe it has history or a story, maybe you just liked the person who gave it to you. While it may not quite fit your current decor, it's doesn't necessary have to be collecting dust because you can't bare to get rid of it. Why not incorporate into your home? Here's some ideas for putting that odd chair to use....
