Have an old, wobbly, doesn't-fit-in-with-the-decor, or otherwise unwanted chair in the house?
Put it in the garden.
An easy project, I took a little wobbly chair, removed the seat cushion, bought a plastic pot to match the black frame, purchased some plants that pair well together and voila, a whimsy display for the patio garden!
This chair planter project took all of 20 minutes to do. After removing the seat, I put the pot in place, drilled a few holes in the bottom for drainage, dropped in some weed cloth to keep the dirt in, poured in some planting mix (which I already had on hand), and transplanted those plants. I actually spent more time shopping for the right pot and plants! My total cost to 'create' the planter was $23, the bulk of that spent on the plants, which were on clearance at Walmart. It's getting to be the end of garden center shopping season, so get what flowers and veggies you still need while supplies last, selections up to 50% off.
