Repurposed Bench Turned Pretty Planter


If you have visited my blog before than you know it's no secret I love to paint, and I love to paint on out of the ordinary pieces. I don't have room to get out canvas and make a mess so I like to paint things that I can repurpose and use.. like benches, wheelbarrows, and headboards for my yard. LOL. I keep with a theme of painted flowers so that I don't look to much like the crazy lady on the block. I like it all to flow but with a touch of quirkiness. I took an old cheap bench I had laying around and turned it into what I like to call an art piece that functions for the yard! ; ) You can check out more on the blog.
I took the top off. Drilled some holes in bottom put in a liner so that the wood doesn't crack and then planted the flowers.
I've loved painting flowers since I was young. I made this piece a little more bohemian and quirky with a touch of Monet for inspiration. He is my favorite artist.

    love the idea and the look but it is much to shallow to be an efficient planter. (at least here in Okla.)
