I was lucky enough to find this 1950's style ice cream parlor chair on the side of the road. My first thought was "this would look great in my backyard" so I threw it in the back of my jeep.
I first used a wire brush to knock off any unwanted dirt and old paint and of course to add more scratches to the vintage style I was looking for.
Next, I measured and cut a piece of plywood to fit inside of the seat (which was a 13 inch circle). Luckily the original seat supports were there and the plywood laid right in place.
Once I made sure it fit, I cut the inside circle that supports the pot. Be sure to cut the inner circle smaller than the top of the pot.
After I cut the circle out I treated the wood with a primer and sealer since it would be wet with water on most days.
I chose to paint my flowerpot white, choose the color that suits you. Think about the possibilities for the chair as well.
So if you happen to see this or anything similar on the side of the road or at a yard sale, stop and grab it! It would look great in any flower garden, in your back yard, or on your deck!
I am linking up to these great parties. Check them out!
