Upcycled Chair Planter & CCBG Link Party #16

Hooray….today is Thursday! I am sharing a fun and super easy, upcycled chair planter with you and I’ve joined up with my crafty friends from the Creative Craft Blog Group to bring you our weekly Link Party CCBG#16. You can link up any of your projects below….after you read all about my chair planter….of course.

Upcycled Chair Planter Makeover

As you can tell by my previous post regarding untraditional flower planters, I have been sprucing up my front porch and deck with flowers and succulents. This used to be a beat up, unloved chair I found at the flea market but now it is a beautiful, upcycled chair planter on my front porch.

Chair Planter

I love a good flea market bargain where I can take something for pennies and repurpose it into something new. Would you believe that the flowers cost more than the chair? I paid $1 for the chair and $12 for the plants.

This chair planter was actually really simple to make as we used a beat up chair, a terracotta flower pot and a mix of some pretty plants. Basically my sweet hubby traced the flower pot onto the seat and used a drill to start a hole for cutting out the circle with his jigsaw.

This chair has chipped, layers of paint and it is splitting on the back so it won’t make me sad if it gets further warped and ruined from water. The fact that I saved it from the flea market for $1 and added an unexpected touch of whimsy to my front porch makes me happy.

Don’t you just love the old worn character of this chair? I couldn’t pass it up with the pretty spots of yellow paint peeking out from under the chipped and faded blue paint. Yes, this piece was speaking to me and my flea market golden rule is…. “listen” to your gut, don’t hesitate to pick up the bargain and think about it later.

My Featured Post of the Week

As you know, I am all about a good DIY makeover and I love what Kelly did to her laundry room.  My featured link of the week is The Laundry Room Makeover submitted by Kelly over at Under A Texas Sky. Not only did she do a great job with the décor but the shiplap turned out awesome as well. Way to jazz up a tiny space that isn’t known for much fun.
