Re-arranging Furniture…in the Garden?

I have blogged in the past about the fact that I love 
quirky and unusual things in a garden.

Here is a recent post about garden surprises.

I have a few old bistro chairs which I will be adding to
my garden, but in an unusual way.

As planters.

All you have to do to convert a standard chair is to simply add a wire basket to the “seat”and plant with your favorite flowers, moss or succulents.
I form a basket with chicken wire and then
attach it to the chair with wire.  
Then, I line the basket with moss to hold in the soil.
Easy Peasey!

I will post pics and how-to’s as I go along.

But for now, look at the great examples I 
found on Pinterest.

I love the little addition of the bird house above.

Even an everyday Adirondack gets dressed up for the Garden.

How’s this for an instant pop of color?  
A flower pot, painted the same color as the chair, was
 inserted into the seat area.  How easy is that?

I love this vintage chair with pretty pink and fuschia flowers.

An old bent willow chair makes the perfect planter when
its useful life is over.  

And now for my favorite.

You know I have always wanted a French Bergere chair…

I guess I can have one in my garden!
I love this one planted with a mossy-like ground cover. 

And this isn’t exactly a chair….but it makes me smile.

Isn’t this wicker settee simply charming?

How cute would this be tucked under a shade tree with succulents and moss?  I might have to scout out an old wicker piece and give this a try, as well.

Hope everyone along the East Coast has survived Tropical Storm Beryl.  We are on the tail end of it here today in Coastal NC.
It has brought some much needed rain, and also makes for the perfect day to catch up on some blogs, sleep and old movies.

xxoo, barb 

ps – I do have a new name for my new shop.  I am having a logo designed and will reveal it in a few days.  :)
