- Remove the seat and sand the chair to remove gloss from previous paint and to smooth out the surface.
- Fill any holes or dents with wood filler (if desired). Let dry and sand smooth.
- Remove fabric covering from chair seat and keep the wooden portion. If the chair you rescued doesn’t have a wood seat, you may need to create one to make a frame for the planter.
Trace the planter upside down on the wooden chair seat and cut a hole with a jig saw. Drill a hole in one of the corners to put the saw blade through to begin cutting. This will serve as a frame to hold the planter in place.
- Attach the seat with the hole to the chair with wood glue and clamp in place to dry.
- Wipe down all surfaces with a tack cloth to remove dust.
- Paint the entire chair with Krylon ColorMaster Primer in White. Let dry.
- Paint the entire chair with Krylon ColorMaster in Bauhaus Gold. Let dry.
- Wash the planter with Dawn dish liquid and set aside to dry. Once dry wipe down throughly with alcohol.
- Paint the planter with Krylon Primer for Plastic in White. Let dry 10 minutes.
- Paint the planter with Krylon ColorMaster in Coral Isle. Let dry throughly.
This whimsical planter is a fun way to repurpose an old chair that’s no longer sturdy enough to hold a person. Place it on your front porch or in a corner of the garden for an eye-catching display.
