Using a chair, that has a seat that you can REMOVE and place a pot of flowers in the hole, is an excellent movable piece of art for the landscape. Paint the chair your favorite color (of course BLUE is my choiceSurprised) or leave it natural. I have a set of 4 wrought iron chairs that someone was throwing out at our recycling center. Can you imagine how much my heart was beating when I saw these beauties being thrown out SurprisedSurprisedSurprised. Hoping no one got to them before me.That day of volunteering REALLY REALLY was a profitable day...I scored BIG TIME.  I use all my chairs to fill voids in the gardens or just in my yard someplace where it needs a dash of color. I have pots that I plant for Autumn interest in a holding area of my yard, just waiting to get their time to SHINE in my moveable chairs. I think 2012 Fall I will plant some bulbs in these large pots, sink the pots in the ground and then in Spring dig the pots up and place in the chairs. Sounds like a plan to me, now I just have to remember to do it.Laugh

Yesterday I started painting a chair I got at a thrift store for $2.00.  Of course I am painting it BLUE. I am using a primer paint first and then the color. Try this simply project for your yard this Spring. It is a great way to spend the Winter months Wink
