I am lucky because living in the South I can entertain all year round, so I spend lots of time outside in my back yard. I needed a little herb garden. I wanted to do something unique, so I had this Chair challenge. So now I’ll show you how to create a herb garden from a chair. this little garden will make things easy when I grill. All the supplies for this chair planter I had and the project cost me absolutely nothing.
Materials for an outdoor herb garden!
- Old chair
1.Painting the Chair
I removed the seat and sprayed painted the chair. Once the chair was dried, I reattached the seat.
2. Making the Box Garden
- I made a herb garden box with the same dimensions of the seat. (To create the box you measure the size of the seat and I used my miter box to cut the pieces of wood.) I glued each end with a strong adhesive and let dry for a few hours.
- I then attached the box to the seat with more glue and sprayed painted the wood the same color as the chair.
I carefully with chalk made 3 lines on the front of the chair as a guide to stencil the letters. I carefully placed the letter stencil and quickly dab some paint on it. Continued doing this until the words Relax, Garden and Eat appeared. 🙂
4. Adding Plants
Fill the box with potting soil and add the herb plants. Make sure there is enough to make the box look full.
