The Start of Planted Garden Chairs
I have had this Vintage Chair since College. It was a Garage sale find for $5 years ago. This chair has been painted Blue, Green, and Black with the seat covered in many different fabrics. I was almost ready to part with it; but then I decided to give it one more life in the Garden. I sanded it and peeled away some of the layers of old paint and then gave it a coat of Yellow Milk Paint- Miss Mustard Seed Yellow- and a thin layer of Antique wax. I love the rough chippy look with some of the old paint colors showing through. I think it will take on a whole new look as it ages in the garden. I lined the seat with wire and Moss and filled it with potting soil mix. I can't wait to get it planted for Spring.
I think I will be making a few more of these.
