Garden Chair

This is such a fun time of year. All the garden centers are filling with beautiful flowers and it just makes you want to plant something! I am inspired to bring the outside in...and in this case maybe take a bit of the inside out. Here is my latest project...


I was inspired by a chair I saw at the Junk Sisters show..and have been wanting to make one ever since!

Inspiration chair from Junk sisters show
I had a chair that I bought years ago at a garage sale for $2. I had never done anything with it and thought this would be perfect! My husband cut a hole in the seat of it the right size to put a pot I had. It would probably look better to put wire and moss or something to that effect, but I decided to go with a pot.



I think it is just as cute as can be! When the plants grow it will look even better, and more natural.




I am thinking this is adorable:)

Happy Spring--Thanks for visiting!

so cute, sandy! and the chicken wire and moss can drop a lot of messy "stuff" when you water, so i think your pot is a good choice for your pretty porch:)
