Outdoor Chair Planter Project

Garden 01.07.15
A while back I was walking down an alley and came across an old chair. Most would have passed right by it, thinking it was garbage. I, however, could see the infinite beauty in this worn down, cast aside chair with no seat. With a little work, I was able to create this little piece of sunshine in the back of my garden. #PowerofPaint

Here is the summary of the project, but you will find much more detail on the blog: http://gardentherapy.ca/outdoor-chair-plante...

    I did this to an old chair; painted it a bright green; nice contrast to the pink flowers I have in it. Brightens up the porch too....

    I am always in awe of someone that can look at an old thing and see what can be done with it. I wish I had that vision to make some of the beautiful things that come from them. Such great ideas. Good to see things like this Stephanie, keep up the good work/

    Stephanie...loved your idea for the chair so much I went looking for one and found it! Since I have bright yellow on my patio all ready, I will paint mine a very bright, glossy azure blue tomorrow. I've gotten my paint and prepared the chair so I am

    I saw the perfect chair put out in the trash last Friday morning, but alas, I was on my way somewhere in a hurry and couldn't stop to grab it!! It's gone now :( but I hope I get another chance like that soon.
