Refresh, Renew, ReStore: Make a DIY planter from an old wood chair this spring

Spring is here, and DIY makeover ideas are springing up like crazy in my brain.

So when I spied a few rows of wood chairs at the Habitat for Humanity Bucks County ReStore, my DIY day was made. I knew I could turn one of them into a DIY planter for new flowers to liven up my porch.

Some chairs were in pairs but most were singles, and all of them were inexpensive. A bargain if you want a chair, and a huge opportunity for a springtime repurpose project.

After examining the shapes, sizes, and details of all the chairs at my Habitat ReStore, I decided on the perfect chair for my DIY repurpose idea. And that wood chair had no idea that is was about to become a new DIY flower planter for my front porch.
