A few weeks ago I was hitting some local garage sales (one of my favorite pastimes) and I found this old chair for $3.00. I knew instantly what I wanted to do with it.
I took a sharp razor knife and cut off the rattan seat.
I used some outdoor shade material that I had lying around and cut it into two strips that got stapled to the chair and then I added a coco nest liner used for hanging baskets I'm sure there are other materials that I could have used to hold the basket, but I wanted to use what I had here at the house. I think wire would look quite good as long as it's coated so it doesn't rust.
Then I just filled it with some of my favorite plants and added craft store moss to help keep it moist and cover up the strapping on the top.
And here it is in place! I think I will spend some more time out in the garden this weekend. Even though the highs have been hovering around 103 degrees here, the mornings have been lovely :)
Stay cool every one and have a wonderful weekend!!!
