Here is an idea to store folding chairs.

We love to host for dinner, but we don’t need to have six chairs in our dining room at all times, they just take too much room.
Also, our wooden chairs were $50 each on sale and I didn’t want to spend so much for rarely used chairs.

As a solution, we bought two extra GUNDE folding chairs from IKEA. Even though they do fold, I wasn’t sure where I should store them. We don’t have a storage room in the house or a large enough closet.  Walking through the isles on my way to the cash, I had a revelation.
I got me two BJÄRNUM hooks.
When I arrived home I fixed them to the wall, and that’s all!

So here it is – the ugly chairs don’t just lay around… Oh no! They’ve been hacked!

You can see another hack with these hooks right here:

Ideas for the future – using washi tape to upcycle the chairs so that even when they are just hanging on the wall, they look like a piece of art.
