What do you do with a broken chair? Fix it or throw it away, right? Or... you can re-use it as something else. For instance, you can make it into a shelf, a photo display or a coat rack. I know. Just look at Pinterest. There's tons of ideas there.
I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted mine to be, but I found the bits to make it into an adaptable chair-back - it'll adapt to any situation you put it in! Just pick a room and it'll fit in with what you need it to do. Or be.
The best bit, I think, is the antique curtain rod holders I found. I've had these rusted and bent things for a few years, just waiting for the perfect project to use them on. They're just so cute with their little flower topped screws for holding in the curtain rod.
I got a couple of bulldog clips - with the requisite amount of rust on them - and added those to the back to hold things...
So, here are some options:
1. Kitchen utensil hanger. It can hold handy kitchen tools and recipes.
2. Garden tool hanger. The bulldog clips are a handy place for seed packets and gardening gloves.
3. Hand towel holder. The clips can hold shopping lists or notes.
I also tried the variation of a tea towel on the rod... it works, but the I think it works best as a hand towel roll holder. Hand rolls really struggle to look good in a kitchen and this kind of dresses it up in my opinion.
