There comes a time when you have to decide whether to put something in the trash or try to repurpose it. I had a worn out wicker settee that was headed to the trash....but....could I breath new life into it? Well, maybe.
I always pick up good greenery at yard sales when I see it for a dollar or two, so I had two full totes of greenery taking up space in the studio. So, I decided to marry the greenery and wicker settee to make a portable garden.
The bones of the settee were still good but the seat was nearly non existant, H removed the few pieces of wicker on the seat so I could put together a garden in what was left.
I needed a little more than the few cross bars that were left where the seat was, so H put a sheet of chicken wire across the seat to make me something to attach my greenery and flowers to.
I love the look of my new garden settee!
I added a hand painted bird house that I bought at an estate sale a few weeks ago.
You may remember seeing the succulents in the front of the seat from a yard sale post I did a few weeks ago.
My Cottage sign was also purchased at a yard sale a few weeks ago.
Is that another worn out wicker settee on the porch.....I believe it is...lol! I still have a tote of greenery left, another bird house, and some more yard sale flowers so I think I will make a twin!
Be back soon to show you the "twin" and how they look on the porch.
