Chair project ✅ I had posted a few pics ago the garden planter chair I was redoing. It seemed a little light compared to our rustic look. So, the back was antiqued a bit and then the whole project sealed with a polyurethane. ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ For the seat a length of poultry fencing was cut and then placed in the cut out of the chair. A lip was left to staple it to the chair. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ A burlap bag was a cheap alternative to a coconut insert for flowers. Another thrifty idea was to buy buckets from our local Rural King. They had red ones ๐Ÿคฉ so I grabbed three, drilled holes for drainage and now they make great pots for flowers. A basket to set the pot of flowers in adds more dimension. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ Now that it’s a little darker I love it! It’s a fun project for an old chair that’s no longer used! At GW or thrift markets they are usually pretty reasonable! Let me know what DIY projects you are working on!! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ I’m sharing today for #basketsandblessings @sharonwarren7798 This flower basket is full of beautiful blooms which help me to remember that life is short and even though these little blooms are beautiful they only last for a short time. My life should be a beautiful example and reflection of all the blessings I have received. I should help to bring happiness and smiles to who ever I meet because of the giver of Life! Bloom where you are planted!!

Welcome to another week of #weatheredandwonderful. This week's feature belongs to Amanda @86th_lane. Her beautiful galvanized tubs full of hydrangeas brought us back to simpler times. Her rusty wheel and weathered watering can completed the picture. Thank goodness we are not washing in those tubs anymore, but filling them with the gorgeous flowers of summer! Thank you Amanda! You are definitely #onetofollow. ๐ŸŒฟ This week we are asking for more of your weathered and wonderful summer and garden photos. Rusty goodness and vintage imperfections makes us very happy. ๐ŸŒฟ We want to thank Jana @thevintagejoy for her wonderful feature last week. She is definitely #onetofollow. ๐ŸŒฟ Here is how to play: Post anytime Tuesday through Monday and we will feature our favs throughout the week on insta stories and choose one to be our #weatheredandwonderful pic for the week each Tuesday. Follow your hosts: ๐ŸŒฟAmy @rachelsgarden_artbyamy ๐ŸŒฟ Patty @thefoothillsfarmhouse ๐ŸŒฟElizabeth @lastdoordownthehall ๐ŸŒฟ Tammy @tammy_thyme ๐ŸŒฟ Lynn @quakerhillfarm Last but not least, have fun! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ #vintagewashtub #decorhashtagfeed #hydrangeas #vintagefeel #vintagefeels #rusticgarden
