Not everything old is ancient. Sometimes people throw out perfectly good things for me to play with!

Another Dumpster Dive and more Junk to play with. I found these two kids chairs, and decided right away that they would make great planters. The legs are hollow as is the seat, so I just cut a hole in the seat of the chairs,drilled some drain holes, filled with dirt and put in some marigolds!

RustyDiva writes: What an awesome idea!!!! What did you cut the seats out with? I have nephews and I have chairs so I'm thinking a little "garden" gift is in store for their birthdays this year. I'll add some little garden tools and a watering can and an easy plant. Maybe paint their name on the back. Ooooo the ideas are flowing now ~ thanks for the inspiration! Posted: 12:32 pm on April 7th
