|Old school chairs|
I literally pulled them out of the school's garbage pile, chucked them in the back of the van and brought them home. Michael was none too pleased at the time because they were covered in crap (subsequently traipsed through the house) and they smelled a bit funny. Not to worry, a bit of a rub down with warm soapy water, a spritz of vinegar for the weird musty smell, and a little orange oil later, now they are his favourite chairs in the house.
Mine actually sit by the bookshelf and hold a few books/mags that I'm currently reading, making them a handy item as well as a decorative one. As an added bonus, some of them actually have room numbers stencilled on to the back and if you look carefully there's a lewd bit of graffiti on one of them! Comfy and free, that's what I like to hear!
