We all have chairs in our homes. They’re basic furniture pieces that are an important part of any home’s design. But chairs are not immortal. At one point they become too old to be used. They then become unnecessary. However, this doesn’t mean they have to be thrown away. They can still be useful. They are lots of ways in which you can repurpose old chairs. One of them is to turn the chairs into flower beds or planters.
To be able to do that you need a traditional old chair, the type with a wooden structure and simple lines. However, other types of chairs can also be turned into beautiful planters with a little imagination and creativity. Basically, what you need to do in the case of a classical chair is to make a hole in the seat. It should be wide enough for the planter to fit in without falling through the hole. The chair will become a sort of display area for the plants and flowers. Let’s now see how you can turn an old chair into a mini garden for succulents and plants.
A mini garden of colorful succulents, plants and flowers is a wonderful decoration for the balcony, deck, terrace or patio. You can also keep them indoor if you want. There are two ways in which you can use an old chair for this purpose. The first one is to choose a flower pot that you like, measure it and then make a hole in the chair’s seat that slightly larger than the bottom of the pot. Instead of the pot you can also use kitchen utensils such as pans.
The second method is to create a sort of nest for the plants. For example, you can make a wire basket for large plants. This method allows you completely remove the seat of the chair, exposing the frame. This way you don’t have to make a hole in it anymore. Then you can simply select the right size of basket and insert it inside the hole where the seat used to be. It’s convenient, simple and very clever and creative.
