I like the way this looks, but I have not found a place for it in my home yet- its still on my porch.

Maybe find an old end table and another chair, paint them all or coordinating colors and use them for a small nook to sit and watch the world go by. Sometimes it's just the right spot to be out of range of the phone but still hear if you're needed by your spouse or children. I've seen a lot of old chairs done this way here in our small Southern town. Posted: 3:59 pm on December 23rd

plus, they look lonely when they're abandoned. . . Posted: 4:53 pm on December 4th

Maybe it is a girl thing, a junker thing, or whatever, as I too have an afinity for single chairs. I have been forbidden to bring home another single chair, and picture frame into our house. I have a weakness for them, but not enough spots to display them. Posted: 4:30 pm on December 4th

Can you put her in a spot that gives her more of a purpose than to just sit on? As a bedside table, a bookshelf (stack some books on her), in a bathroom, laundry, etc.

Great find by the way.
