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.
