Many of you talented gals can spend hours browsing flea markets, yard sales and garage sales to find that one piece that makes the heart go pitty-pat, that sorry old item you take home and, with a little elbow grease and some creative touches, turn from trash to treasure. I’m always looking for fun ways to display plants around my home and these planter ideas from bhg.com are just too clever. Plain dining chairs that have seen better days refurbished into planters for your yard or garden. Removing the seat of a salvaged chair and adding some colorful paint gave these has-beens new life.
An adorable child-size chair in blue and green holds pretty pink petunias.
Using chicken wire, cut and form a wire frame to fit down into the seat of the chair.
Coco fabric liner to tuck into the chicken wire form.
Add some potting mix and lots of colorful plants or flowers.
And look what you’ve got.
I love the bright green paint color on this revamped chair. The cut out sunflower adds some dimension. How simple.
This might be my favorite, so colorful and fun. I think I might fill this chair planter with some bold red, yellow and orange Gerber daisies.
Bright red paint spruces up this cute kitchen chair. You could be as creative as you like by adding words and fancy details.
This revamped chair wears softer paint colors and some “rosy” detail. Very pretty.
I know there are many of you out there in Blogland who could take this sad old chair . . .
. . . and turn it into something fun and creative and even better, useful again. Have any of you tried something like this before? Come on, I know you have. Would love to see if you’d like to share. Feel free to leave a comment and a link to your “revamped” blogpost and show us your creative side.
Isn’t it wonderful to have Summer back again and everything that goes with it? Warm breezes, Summer rains, lots of sun, green grass and colorful plants and flowers. Mother Nature sure knows what she’s doing. Enjoy!
