Fun Furniture Idea: Chairs in the Air by becky
Now, Becky gives you a topic “Give Your Room a Lift With a Chair From the Ceiling”. This time, Becky start with several questions. Short on floor space? Tired of those annoying felt stickers that protect your hardwood floors from furniture feet? Fearful that your couch is going to eat you alive? Perhaps it’s time to try something different. If you loved the swings as a kid or have fond memories of swaying in a hammock, you may want to give hanging furniture a whirl. Here are just a few things hanging furniture can do.
