junktique planter...

now i know most of you know this one but i'll share it anyways.  just take an old chair, i wish i had a before of this one...yuckiest poo yellow color you have ever seen.  you can find chairs for cheap at yard sales and thrift stores and the good thing about this project is it doesn't matter what they look like really.  i wish this one would have had nasty white paint or some other color and i would have just left it alone.  we got this out of a shed and it was in bad shape but big d put it all back together for me, yay big d!   then find you a pot.  i have another one made out of an old school chair that i would show you but i don't have any pictures of it with flowers.  in that one i just used a plastic pot from walmart...in the one i'm showing you i used a big ole enamelware pot that i had.  so once you have your chair painted  and put back together, if it needs fixing, then you saw a hole in it.  i know some of you do not have a saw...find a neighbor or dad or friend that would be willing to do that for you.  someone you know has to have a saw if they have testosterone!  so anyhoo...plant that pot up with some pretty flowers and this is what you'll end up with.:D

fyi...these gorgeous plants are coleus.  there are many different shades and sizes and because my porch faces north i don't get a lot of sun and they love shade.  perfection.  sorry the picture isn't great but i need a new camera, hint hint.;D

Marci...I'm so excited for lunch tomorrow! Tanya googled the address for me, but I'm glad to know it is just across from dear lizzy's because I do know where that is.
