Have you seen those chair planters? You know, where someone turns the seat of a chair into a planter holder? Well, when I rescued 6 chairs from my moving neighbor’s trash pile, I knew I wanted to make a chair planter!
After I made it, I wanted it to be Christmas-y so I stuck a Christmas tree in it! It was so simple and easy, yet it looks amazing! At least I think so….. what do you think? Feel free to rest your scrolling muscles and watch the video instead.
Rescue chair from neighbor’s trash…. Would you do the same thing? Yes, I took all six chairs….
I took the foam off of the seat. When I saw that it wasn’t solid wood, I used it to trace out the shape I needed on a piece of plywood.
I marked a circle in the center. Then I drilled holes to make cutting with jigsaw easier.
It worked! It took a little time and concentration, but I cut it with a jigsaw.
I paint the seat with leftover black rust prevention paint. It was the only black paint I had….
I used a salvaged prelit Christmas tree for a plant, and I am so glad that I did.
It looked a little bare, so I added free pine cones to the tree.
I could hardly wait for dark to come so I could plug in the tree! Isn’t it beautiful?!
I may have done a dance of joy because this project cost me nothing but my time!
I hope seeing this idea has inspired you in your own creative endeavors!
