Condo Blues: Grow Flowers in Old Lawn Chairs

Grow Flowers in Old Lawn Chairs

Here’s a seriously cute creative reuse project for those old 50’s style lawn chairs – turn them into flower pots!

I was be bopping along one of my favorite shopping haunts and found these little beauties outside a shop as an art piece.

They look a lot nicer than my mushroom patio chairs too.

Looks easy enough to duplicate. Find some ugly 50’s style lawn chairs, paint them a wild color (I’m digging the hot pink), stuff them full of dirt (tricky I suspect), and plant a bunch of succulents or any other type of water-retaining plant. (I suspect cactus might look tad inhospitable. Ouch!)

Watering them every once and a while might be a good idea too.

That's an interesting thing to do! Hmmmm. :)

I signed in this time using google friends. Goodness. Now I can't get my blog to show up. LOL I guess you changed your comment section since I don't recall having this much trouble before.

Kimm, Franklin Park Conservatory had these chairs set up outside the old Z Gallery (*sniff*) at Easton.

That's a pretty good decoration for a garden, but they're not to useful. They might look good in the corner of a garden where they are out of the way and kind of look like they were forgotten about and left alone.

Very different...but that is art.

I think these are fabulous! If you cover them with succulents, then people are less likely to park their behinds on the art work.
