Please take a seat! Vintage chairs as plant stands






     Over the years I have used lots of different vintage chairs as plant stands. They are a great way to add a focal point or even hide a problem area.  My favorite is my wicker chair I found at a garage sale for ten bucks.  I originally wanted to use it for my desk but it was spray painted black and I wanted a lighter cream color.  By the time I finished spray painting the chair it was so stiff and uncomfortable I decided to use it in my front garden.  Always looking for a bargain, I wait until our local garden center has a fifty percent off sell, usually the second week in June, to buy my flowers.  My vintage folding chair had a twin but it finally rusted out so I used the spare.  Last summer, we experienced a severe drought and I lost part of my Japanese quince so this will add a little color as well as camouflage the area.
