Upcycling, reusing, and curbside decorating resources

First, there were the polka dot chairs.

Then, there was a chair that became a planter.

Next: it's not worthy of a photo yet, but we picked up the skeleton of a dresser drawer left curbside and turned it into a small flowerbed. I had an adventure digging a space for it; I found the footings for the front porch that was on our house nearly a century ago. Nope, I couldn't dig very deeply there! I had to do more evening out and building up than digging down.

I'm sure you'll see the results later as the plants grow.

How fun! I've seen an old dresser used as a planter--flowers spilling out of the drawers!
