Spring Chair

It is finally Spring!

Well, if you live in Utah, it is Spring a few days a week and Winter a few days a week.

But I couldn't wait one more minute to start planting FLOWERS

And so I present my newest planter:

I've seen these wooden chairs before and love them as a planter.

I bought a $5 chair at the D.I. (goodwill)

I don't have any during pictures.  My camera has been broken and I just got my lens back from
the shop today.  But this was the easiest project, EVER!

The Hubs cut a circle out of the bench.  That's right, he has MAD skills. 
He's my special helper on a lot of craft projects!

I love hanging basket plants, but I don't really have anywhere for them to hang.
This is the perfect solution.

I painted the chair white and then painted cappuccino glaze over the top.  I wiped off
the glaze and tada!  Easy Peasy

My yard went to crap the last two summers.  I was prego and then my poor son
was pretty fragile last summer.  We didn't get out
much.  So I have a lot of yard work to get back to where
I was before.  But that's what I love about planters!
Instant gratification.  My kind of gratification. 

Happy Spring!
