I found a neat looking basket in the discard pile at my job.
Yes, I trash pick. #notashamed
I liked this basket because it had feet and I liked the shape of it. It was also in great shape. I thought it would make a cute planter.
I promptly painted the basket white with some chalk paint.
I let the paint dry and painted a second coat of white chalk paint.
I then popped in some boxwoods and I thought it was perfect!
This thing would be cute with some faux apples in it for fall, or some mini gourds. I can’t wait to see how many different ways I can decorate with it!
Have you turned any trash into treasure lately? Comment and show me your projects!
Last year, my grandpa gave me this chair. He heard I was looking for an old chair and someone had given it to him.
I liked the look of the chair. It was a nice size and I thought it was a cute chair. I just wasn’t too sure about that metal woven seat. The metal was a little sharp and I was worried about my kids cutting their fingers.
So I removed it. I then painted the chair yellow.
I also used a little sandpaper to distress it a bit.
I first tried to use landscape mat to plant a vine plant, but it didn’t work.
So instead, I took some old wood planks and laid them across the bottom rungs of the chair.
I love how cute and unique this chair plant stand is. Plus, if I get tired of it, I can build a new seat for it.
But, the color brightens up our porch, and we get lots of compliments on our “fern chair.”
What have you repurposed lately?
