More projects

Home Depot let us know, that our supplies are delayed. Delivery won't be till the 12th! I was so looking forward to getting started. A few more days won't kill me. 

In the meantime, I am not without "projects" and many are half-finished. I seem to do that. I start something and then get interested in something else. It will get done. Soon... One such project is 2 old IKEA wicker chairs that I've had for 20 years. Since I do not like to throw anything out, I stripped one of them down and what I do, is I stare at it - okay I stare at it for DAYS to try and come up with how I want to repurpose it. 

At first, I thought I might just weave them making a homemade rag rope from old material to make a really cool chair - 

I wouldn't want to use it outside. 

I have enough chairs! 

Rag design like this? 

Or something like this? 

Probably more like this. 

It's simple - staining the wood, and then placing potted plants on it.  I know, not a lot of imagination -  
It will be good for the time being. 

I just need some old fence boards for the seat part and voila, 
I have another place to display my potted plants. 


  1. Whatever you do it will look better then anythingn I tried

  2. I used a similar chair in my garden for years--I spray painted it as it was and used it for big lush ferns. I have lots of projects in the works, too. xo Diana
