Flower Planter Thrift Store Chairs Two Ways!

Here is my original wooden chair I turned into a flower planter. 
I LOVED IT!
But it only lasted two years since it was an indoor wooden
 dining room chair and fell all to pieces.

So this year I kept my eyes open for METAL chairs to use in the garden and 
LOOK!
I scored 2 of these beauties, both powder coated steel!



The seats are plywood and easily removed. I saved the plywood pieces for more projects.
I spray painted one white and added my "Green Man" sculpture to the chair back.
 Pallet boards fit make a sturdy shelf and a planter and saucer
 from my stash made this project easy peasy and pretty!



The second chair has a different look with Rustoleum spray paint in "Lagoon." 
The circular piece is from a broken hose hanger. 
A pink miniature rose fits right into the chair opening.



I decided to replace the planter of roses with some colorful annuals. A quick trip to the Dollar Tree got me a dishpan and a tray that fit the chair nicely. Pallet boards provided
 a sturdy shelf and here she is, newly planted with colorful annuals. 

           
                           

Two metal chairs, two different looks. And the best thing is,
 they only cost $4.99 apiece!

Gotta love thrift store shopping for garden projects!
