From trash to treasure (literally!)

 After dropping my son off at school one morning I decided to stalk search the neighborhood for any goodies that someone may have left out for trash that morning.  I stumbled upon this chair.


It's a rather small chair.  The seat cushion was nasty, so I just threw it away.  I was going to replace the seat, but I thought a little more and decided to turn it into a planter.  I added a coco basket liner and some rocks, in hopes of protecting the wood seat from water.  I'm so pleased with the results!
