Hi this is Jodi, I love up-cycling old furniture into new pieces. Especially when you can take a discarded headboard or chair and use it for your flower garden and porch. 

Any headboard can work. Having the foot board  is a bonus. I cut the foot board in half, attached it with screws to the headboard and then added an old cupboard door for the seat. I added a piece of crown molding to the front. Next I cut 3 holes in the seat for my flowers using a jig saw. I picked a bright fun color to paint it so it would pop. I then sealed it with a couple coats to protect it from the weather.




 I bought a few chairs and decided to make them into a holder for a flower pot. Super easy and so cute! I cut a hole in the seat (again with the jig saw) and then primed and painted it. Next I distressed it a bit and then sealed it. I love the bright blue and love how it looks on my front porch.



What do you have in your flower beds? The possibilities are endless. Leave a comment and share this on Facebook to win a flower pot chair for your front porch! Make sure you like us on Facebook too!  Winner will be announced on Friday May 17th.


*Chair is located in American fork Utah. Flowers not included. Winner will need to pick up chair.

  1. I have been using old tin buckets and water basins and old toy trucks. One thing I would love to do is find various old suitcases and stack and plant flowers in them cascading out. Would be so pretty!
