When I got home and could take a closer look I could see why they were by the side of the road. The plastic cane-like seats were shot. That's what made them so attractive. That and their dark green paint.
Pot Holders, But Not the Kind for the Kitchen
Driving home from work, oh about five or six years ago (lol), I spied some patio chairs along side the road. They looked pretty good from afar so I threw them in the back of my car.
So fast forward to today. I had to round up the chairs because one went to the metal heap and one was a make shift temporary chair. I toyed with the idea of painting them and decided to hold off that thought. I had some rim inserts that fit nicely inside the chair frame so I popped them in.
They were perfect to hold the two pots I picked up at Lowe's as I did not want to jump up in price to a bigger pot.
Here's a better look at the chairs. They now kind of look like portable potty chairs. But, not for long...
I filled the pots full of 99 cents pony packs! Dusty Miller, stock and begonia.
Can't wait for the pots to "fill in".
