Flower Pot Chair

Because it is spring and because I can't stop buying flowers I had to come up with another place for yet another pot of flowers.  And because I have been salvaging through the old sheds at the farm (see what else I found here) coming across some cool stuff I couldn't help but turn this "find" into a flower pot {with the help of my friend and neighbor's husband because my hubs was out of town}.

The chair is old which I love.  The chair is white which I love.  The chair has old chippy paint which I love love love.  I think it is perfect and cute.  The chair did have one leg that was a little shorter than the others, but in this case it works!

I traced the size of circle I wanted for the terra cotta flower pot to sit in and then my friend and neighbor's husband used a 1" drill bit to cut an access point for the jigsaw to fit in to cut the circle.  It took all of 5 minutes for this beauty to come to life!!!!!!

P.S.  I am really going to have to get more power tools of my own!!!!

  1. Awwww! I love it!

  2. This brings back great memories =) My mom used to have these in our gardens when I was growing up.

    I love your blog and love your LIFE! I wish I lived on a farm! However, for now I'm traveling around the states with my hubby in an RV! Hopefully someday I'll get my property =)

    Found your blog through my sister's, Little Lucy Lu. Glad to stumble upon yours! I'm your newest follower!

  3. Love the chair. I'm partial to chairs. Don't know why. That is a good plant holder. Hope we get to see a picture when it's in full bloom....
    Have a great day.

  4. I just love this ... and as my sis said - yep, reminds me of "home". :-)
    Great job!
    And thanks for linking up!

  5. I just got an old soda shop chair that I'm planning on using as a flower pot! Yours turned out SO cute! :)

  6. I have a chair just like yours sitting on my porch with a plant on it. What a great idea to put a hole in the chair!!
