$1.00 Yard Sale Chair Turned Into Fab Yard Art

by Jalena Rusaw
This chair was calling me. It matches the bench I made last year and adds some height to my garden. Best of all, it was super easy and cheap!
Cleaned up the wood.
Used a tinted stain and sealer.
Added some love and called it a day.

    I love the way this looks and want to add an old chair to my garden as well. However, I don't see how you put the flowers in the chair. Did you use a flower pot or did you build a box for the bottom of the chair? I have always loved this idea and you did such a beautiful job on this project. Thanks for sharing your great project with us!

    I gave up using wooden chairs, they see to rot or unglue themselves in 2 or3 yrs. Now I use only steel patio chairs.
