Antique Chair Planter
Living in Minnesota we don't get to enjoy our flowers year round. I always get a potted plant from Costco (they seem to grow and stay nice looking the longest for me). I like to keep it on our porch. So I would just plunk it down. As it grows I drape it down the steps. But this year I came across an old antique chair at a local antique shop. And I thought, hmm, if I cut out the wicker center (the seat part) I could put the pot in there. Thus the plant will drape down the chair vs on the cement step. Easy enough to cut out the seat part of the chair as it was pretty old. I then scraped off some of the white paint to give more of a weathered look to the chair.
The chair was $5 and I couldn't be more pleased.
I did this in May so plant is starting to drape.
you can see the pot and the wicker bottom I cut away.

Less mess on the cement and the plant can keep growing...
