Brought from my mother's place. Husband cut a hole in centre and I gave it a coat of paint. All ready to be planted.

ohh what a cute idea. It'll look amazing with some vines growing up and in the chair back, very cool.

Oh Blossom! Beautiful!

I too want to do this, but I am very fond of the old chair I have...have had it since the kids were kids...

Had hoped to get a small stepladder, but it doesn't look possible...must see if husb. can cut a hole in my darling old chair!

Very creative, Blossom!

In the strangest way it reminds me of the potty.
