I bought these wood chairs to go with a table I found at Goodwill. After I got them home, they were too small next to the table. This is when I decided they would make great plant holders.
This is another one of those projects of using what I had on hand, except the plants.
Of course it would be an excuse to bust out my new tool, the Jigsaw from Ryobi.
The bottom of this clay base was the perfect size I needed to cut the hole in the chair. I traced around it to make m template.
I used a large drill bit, larger than the blade on the jig saw, to drill a pilot hole. Once I had the hole started, it was simple to use the jig saw to cut out the circle.
Of course I forgot to take a picture of the drill bit and the hole, but it is pretty explanatory.
I spray painted the chairs in Rustoluem 2X Ultra Cover in Aqua and Eden. I used a light sanding pad to distress the edges to give a worn appearance. Of course this will happen naturally once placed out side in the elements. I sealed the chairs with Spray polycrylic from Minwax.
I love the contrast of the blue chair against the colors in the plants. It is so simple to find used pieces and turn them into fun pieces.
