A chair with a hole in the seat.
And then I made a bigger hole.
With a knife.
This is its story.
[Insert Law and Order bum-bums]
So I saw an idea some time ago...an idea about turning an old or antique or unwanted or well, you get the picture, chair into a planter. I really wanted to try it! Here's what I did...
Remember I said I bought this chair from my sister? Well every time my husband and I went to sit down on it, it creaked and cried like we were bound to hit the floor...So what's the harm in cutting it up, right?
First I had to measure an old toy tub to make sure it would recess into the chair like I wanted...there was just enough room. Then I cut around the tub with a serrated knife...The tub fit very snugly into place.
Next I spray-painted the old tub black. After I inserted the tub, I filled it with some annuals from Wal-Mart that my daughter and I picked out. I added a little extra soil to fill in the bare spots. I then took a wooden plaque that I had painted with chalkboard paint (the plaque was $1 @ Wally-world) and I added some colorful material and some paint around the edge. I added our house number and VOILA! My new beautiful chair-turned-planter!!!
