Old Chair Planter

I found this old chair for a few bucks at a thift store and cut a hole.
I like! But both could use some COLOR!
Left over paint from an accent wall in my house...
The finished project!

I just painted a chair red Easter Weekend and stuck a pot on it! I wish I could cut a hole and stick a pot in it. Looks good. I posted about mine. It had layers of ugly paint and I just painted over it red. I stuck it in my flower bed thinking the more paint the better to protect it from the elements.

How terrific!! If you don't mind me asking, how did you cut the hole in your chair? I might have to give this a shot!

Old and shaby chair turned into a new and chic planter. Awesome!

Very, very cute! I just pulled one out the attic a few days ago that I paid $5 for at a yard sale, intending to do this -- about five years ago! Better late than never, right? How did you cut the hole -- with a jigsaw?

What a cute planter! I love these chair planters and made one myself a few years ago with a chair I got at an auction for $1. It eventually fell apart from being outside but was a $1 well spent.

Found you from Fireflies and Jellybeans - What a cute idea - I hope I can find a chair soon to do something similar for our porch.
Thanks for the inspiration!

I've got two chairs that I'll be doing the samething this weekend. I saw one at a craft show and they wanted %17 and we can definitly make our own for much less. Love the red!
