There are many ways to repurpose old chairs, however this garden chair may be one of the easiest and pretty ways.
Paint Garden Chair a Bright Color
I am usually not a fan of yellow. But I was getting tired of my regular "oops" colors and splurged on a pint can of yellow! It seems like there are never any yellow hues of paint at our HD. Lots of hues of oranges and browns, though.
My uncle had been very sick and was unable to "dress" up his yard this past spring, so the family had a "planting party". Everyone was supposed to bring something to plant, or some mulch. I couldn't decide what to take, so I settled on making a garden chair.
I can't remember if I bought this chair, or if it was a curb find. The local Peddler's Mall that I go to, I can usually get a chair for under $5.00.
Staple Screen to Seat
The screen was a curb find. After stapling the screen, I stapled some of the black weed blocking material, (to keep the soil from washing through the screen). I have to tell you that the black material was also a curb find! Sometimes it pays to hang on to stuff.
