Flower Power


I have converted several chairs over the years into planters. I didn't have my eye on this chair at the auction. The legs had been cut off and it was really low. It was grouped with a little footstool I wanted so I won this when I won the bid for the footstool, so here we go again with a planter!


Typically, I would paint the chair a bright color. I kind of liked the patina on this so I left it raw.


I bought a wire basket to put in the seat to hold the flowers. I attached the wire basket with twine.


I added a coconut liner. The birds have already picked this one apart!


An inexpensive basket from Menard's (on sale for $7.99).


I replanted the basket into the chair, added a patriotic pinwheel and now it is good to go in the landscaping!

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
