A few weeks ago, my mother in law showed me a copy of her Lady’s Home Journal with a picture of a gorgeous hanging basket perched inside an old chair seat.
Of COURSE I had to DIY it. And perfect timing too, since David and I just bought a house last week.
As soon as all the boxes were out of our apartment and into our house, I whipped out a can of spray paint and got to spraying.
The project in its entirety took approximately 30 minutes. And this INCLUDES dry time.
Yep. Its really that simple. And cheap, too!
I found this chair at Goodwill for $3 back in the Fall!

Its super simple…
take an old chair.
pop out the seat.
spray paint your desired color.
place a hanging basket in the seat of the chair.
& don’t forget to water daily!
