How To Cleverly Upcycle An Old Chair Into A Planter

Unusual DIY Planter Of An Old Chair

There’s not much you can do with an old chair except maybe give it a complete makeover. But, even so, at some point you get tired of using the same old furniture and you feel the need for a change. That doesn’t mean that the chair’s life is over. You could, for example, turn it into a unique planter for your patio or for your garden.

View in gallery

It all starts with the simple process of removing the seat. Depending on the type of chair you have and its design, this part can differ. In any case, find a way to either completely remove the seat to expose the frame or to make a hole in it.

View in gallery

Here’s how the process would go if you’d have to cut a hole in the chair’s seat. Start by tracing a circle, centered on the seat. You can use a bucket or a big round container for this part.

Then drill a hole, somewhere within that circle. Then continue with a second hole. Then you take a jig saw and follow around the inside of the circle. Cut out the middle and sand down the edges.

The type of chair you use for this project is completely up to you so don’t feel obligated to find a wood chair. A metal one can work just fine. And if the chair looks really bad, you can apply a fresh coat of paint on the frame before you do anything else. Then, after you expose the frame and remove the seat, place a large planter inside.{found on sustainmycrafthabit}.

View in gallery

A similar treatment can be applied to an old wood chair, regardless of how bad its condition is. If you have to, you can make some small repairs such as adding a few nails here and there or gluing something down. Then take some paint and give it a fresh new look. Usually wooden chairs have a pretty nice and solid frame which you can see after you remove the seat. So find a planter with the right dimensions and place it in the center. {found on premeditatedleftovers}.

A rocking chair planter can look very charming on the porch. Obviously, you’ll need an old rocking chair for such a project. If you don’t have one, maybe you can buy it for a cheap price.

Give it a thorough cleaning, sand it down and then paint it. Remove the upholstery if there is any to expose the frame. You can then attach a hanging basket to the frame and then put a planter in it.

{found on homestoriesatoz}.

The beauty of such a project lies not only in the chair but also the planter.

There are many different options you can choose from and, while the simplest one is to get a plastic or terra cotta planter with a classic design, a wicker basket can look a lot more interesting and can also offer a rustic look to the whole composition. You can spray paint the basket to match the chair.{found on wednesdaysnest}.

View in gallery

Since you’re using an old chair for the project, in a way it would be unnatural to try to hide its age. So, if you really feel it needs some fresh paint, you can give it a worn look by sanding it in the right places. Check out the tutorial on Paintedtherapy for a bit more inspiration.

View in gallery

Of course, there’s also a different strategy you can opt for. It would work for a chair that really looks old and has the design to prove it. A good example can be found on Flatcreekfarm. The strategy used here is really inspiring and beautiful. The burlap, succulents and stones create a very charming composition.

View in gallery

And if a regular planter is too mainstream and you want to try something different while keeping the project’s cost as low as possible, you can check out Cottageatthecrossroads for an interesting suggestion. Take an old chair, remove the seat and then staple some chicken wire to the frame. Then put a basket full of flowers inside.

These are some favorite garden art chairs I photographed on garden tours. Most of them are simple ideas, but, as you’ll see, by adding a distinct colour of paint or turning the chair into a planter, they become wonderful focal points in the garden.

There are lots more garden idea galleries here.

It’s a simple idea, but a good one. Old wooden and metal kitchen chairs are super handy in the garden. Paint them to stand out and use them to hold flower planters or other garden art.

I gathered these ideas at home garden tours—my favourite way to find inspiration for my own garden.close

I love this chair. If you look closely, you can see the planter was created with chicken wire and some coir lining. Succulents are ideal because they don’t need a lot of depth to grow.

I don’t know if I’d call these garden art, but they’re small and uncomfortable so designating them as art is the only option left!

These were a staple in gardens for years and then seemed to disappear. For years I thought they were hideous but now I get a little nostalgic when I see them.

I know some people love these chairs (“They’re so comfortable!”) but when I see them all I can think of is how hard it is to get in or them. That said, I love how you can use them to add bold color to the garden the red ones shown here.

This photo is actually from my old garden, taken approximately 15 years ago. I’d never seen a chair in a garden at that time but I didn’t have room for it in the house (and didn’t want to get rid of it) so it somehow found its way to the garden and stayed there. (I d it there.)

42 Creative DIY Planter Boxes Ideas

Unusual DIY Planter Of An Old Chair

Planter boxes are versatile elements that are both functional and decorative. On the market, there are dozens of models of planter boxes made of wood, metal, plastic, or other materials. Nevertheless, DIY planter boxes can help you add a touch of originality to your outdoor space.

If you’re boasting the skills but lacking the ideas, get inspired by our 42 creative DIY planter boxes. Enjoy!

1. Untreated Cedar Planter Boxes

Cedar wood is often used for beverage boxes, planters, and even raised beds. However, it is easy to make your own DIY planter boxes from untreated cedar wood.

You’ll only need a few wooden boards, a saw, nails, a hammer, and a little bit of dexterity. To make the planters last longer, you can even choose to treat the wood before planting your favorite flowers.

2. Landscape Timber Planter Box

Landscape timber is another versatile material to use for original planter boxes. You can build large boxes with the timber boards, cut square or rectangular boxes directly into the timber or use cut a timber board and use it to make a smaller planter.

Regardless the idea, you can also choose whether to treat the timber with varnish or leave it natural.

3. Old Books Planter Box

A truly easy and original DIY planter boxes idea is to use your old books as pots. There are many ideas to use and you’ll only need a bit of talent and imagination.

For example, you can cut a small box inside a thicker book to create the planter, or glue more books together to make a larger box. The planter won’t last forever but it will make a wonderful statement while it does.

4. Whiskey Box Planter

A whiskey box can easily be transformed into a planter. Treat the exterior with lacquer or waterproof varnish, drill some holes into the bottom and fill it with potting soil.

Plant your favorite flowers or herbs and your original planter is ready to use.

5. Molded Concrete Planter Boxes

If you have some artistic skills and love working with molded concrete, you can even make a concrete planter box.

You can get inspiration from many sources, or you could create the beautiful planters pictured in the image above.

6. Vintage Stroller Planter Box

Flea markets or garage sales are two places where it is possible to find recyclable vintage objects. If it happens to find an old stroller, you can use it to transform it into an original planter box.

Infant carriers and baby baskets can serve the same purpose.

7. Recycled Pallet Planter Box

Pallets are awesome. When it comes to gardening, you can recycle them to make a gardening table, an original fence, or even an original planter box.

Use the wooden boards to make a planter box from scratch or simply position the pallet vertically and fill it with potting soil to create a vertical garden.

All metal boxes can be used as planters. Whether you want to recycle a tiny tea tin, a first aid metal box or a large storage box, just make sure you drill some holes into the bottom before filling it with soil.

To make the planter last longer, paint the box with anti-rust varnish.

9. Recycled Window Frames Planter Box

If you recently changed your windows, you can use the old frames to make original planter boxes. Simply glue or nail the wooden boards together to make a frame of the desired shape and size.

To give it a more original look, paint each wooden board in a different color. An idea is to use several shades of blue and green mixed with white.

10. Recycled Drawer Planter Boxes

Instead of throwing away your old furniture, use it (or parts of it) to furnish your garden. An original planter box made from an old drawer will certainly add some character to your yard.

You can use drawers from any piece of furniture, regardless of the material. Moreover, if they are metal or wood, you can even paint them in the desired color.

11. Wooden Log Planter Box

A wooden log planter box matches perfectly in a rustic environment. There are dozens of models available on the market, but you can have a lot of fun doing it yourself.

Wooden logs are easy to find at local carpenter’s shops and you’ll only have to nail or glue the logs together to obtain the perfect box.

12. River Stone Planter Box

With a few sculpture skills, you can transform large river stones into original planter boxes. Just cut rectangular holes into a few stones and use them as pots.

River stones absorb and maintain moisture very well, so you’ll not have to worry about watering the plants too often.

13. Tree Bark Planter Box

Tree bark can also be used to make original DIY planter boxes. You can make all the sides of the box with tree bark and use a wooden sheet for the bottom, or just glue the tree bark on the lateral sides of a wooden box.

It’s totally up to you but we can guarantee the beauty of the planter.

14. Concrete Bricks Planter Boxes

Concrete bricks can be transformed into original planter boxes and they match perfectly in a modern or minimalist décor.

Fill the bricks with potting soil and use them as small planters. You can arrange them in any pattern to achieve original effects.

An old metal tool box can also be transformed into a planter. Don’t forget to drill some holes in the bottom of the box before filling it with soil.

In my opinion, leaving the tool box with the original paint is ideal if you are looking to achieve a vintage, shabby chic effect.

16. Stained Wood DIY Planter Boxes

You have two options here. Either buying stained wood boards and use them to build a planter box from scratch or buying an untreated wooden planter and stain the wood yourself.

The choice should be your skills but regardless the method, you’ll achieve a wonderful planter to pair either in a traditional or in a modern environment.

17. Cascaded Flowers Wooden Planter Box

This type of planter box can be made of recycled pallets, from old wooden boxes or from a brand new wooden planter you’re willing to transform.

To make the flower cascade, just cut holes in the walls of the planter. Fill it with potting soil and plant your bulbs next to the holes. Alternatively, plant small seedlings in correspondence to each hole.

18. Recycled Pallet Bench And Planter Boxes

You can use multiple pallets stacked together and a wooden board to build a bench.  Leave the middle of the pallets in sight and fill the space with potting soil. Plant your favorite flowers or aromatic herbs.

The bench is ideal to place in a corner of your garden or next to a fence in the yard.

19. Wall Mounted Planter Boxes

If you don’t want to actually make planter boxes but use them to create original compositions, you can choose a few planters of different sizes and shapes and mount them to the wall in any pattern you .

Since everyone can use the imagination, it is guaranteed that each project and design will be unique.

20. Distressed Wood Planter Boxes

Just as brand new timber, distressed wood can be used to make planter boxes. You can use the wood untreated or paint it in your favorite colors.

You’ll also have the freedom to choose the shape and size of each planter box.

21. DYI Large Wooden Planter Box

Building large wooden planter boxes is simple. All you’ll need is timber, nails, a hammer, and maybe wood glue.

You can build any type of planter box and even raised beds. Ideally, you could use this planter box to make a colorful square foot garden.

22. Gardening Tool Box Planter

metal tool boxes, wooden gardening tool boxes can also be transformed into planters in a blink of an eye. Again, I suggest leaving the box as it is, and just fill it with good potting soil.

The vintage effect of the wooden box makes it perfect to place in a shabby chic garden or in a rustic space decorated with a non-conformist flair.

23. Tier Hanging Wooden Planter Boxes

Tier hanging wooden planter boxes are ideal to decorate a porch or a balcony. They are easy to make with small wooden planters and rope, and easy to hang either on the edge of the balcony or in the ceiling of the porch.

You can even decide whether to leave the wood in a natural color or paint it to match the décor of your home.

24. Wine Box Planters

Wine boxes can be used as planters in a way similar to the whiskey bottles. To make original planters, you can paint the boxes in the desired colors. Alternatively, if the wine comes from a renowned winery, just leave the winery’s logo in sight.

In most cases, you’ll not have to drill holes in the bottom of the box but you can treat it with water repellent varnishes.

25. Stepped Ladder Planter Boxes

A stepped ladder made of planter boxes can decorate with success a remote corner, a patio, or a porch. You could even use it indoors or on a terrace.

It is easy to make a stepped ladder with planter boxes either by arranging wooden planters directly on a stepped ladder or by replacing the steps with wooden planter boxes.

26. DIY Wall Hanging Pallet Planter Boxes

Another pallet recycling idea is to fix a wooden pallet to the wall and arrange small planter boxes on it. Alternatively, you can simply seal one side of the pallet with a wooden board, fill it with potting soil and use it as a vertical garden.

27. Hexagonal Timber Planter Boxes

With timber, nails, and a hammer, you can create a beautiful hexagonal planter box. For a more original solution, divide the interior of the planter into several smaller planters and use each space to grow a different herb.

Otherwise, you can use the planter to grow perennials either in the garden or on your porch.

28. DYI Chair And Drawer Planter Boxes

An old chair and an old drawer can become a comfortable raised planter box. Simply remove the chair’s seat and keep only the legs. Fix the drawer to the legs with nails and use it as a planter box.

If you want to build a taller planter, use the legs of a table instead those of a chair.

29. Pyramid Planter Boxes

Looking for an original design? Build a pyramid planter box with wooden boards. This project requires planning and some carpenter skills, but the result is simply awesome.

You can build the planter as tall as you want and you can also play with dimensions to create the right object for your needs.

30. Recycled Furniture Planter Boxes

The chests of drawers, dressers, nightstands, are pieces of furniture that you can easily transform into planter boxes.

Therefore, next time you plan on redecorating your house, keep the old furniture to redecorate your garden too.

31. DYI Woven Rattan Planter Box

Woven rattan planter boxes are easy to build from woven rattan panels. They won’t look so different from those bought from a store, but you’ll have the satisfaction of growing your plants in a planter build by yourself.

32. Painted Hanging Planter Box

Take an untreated wooden box, paint it in the desired shade, and suspend it from the ceiling on the porch or terrace. Fill the planter with potting soil and use it to grow some lush perennials.

The original effect is guaranteed, and the planter will add value to a rustic environment.

33. DIY Rustic Planter Boxes

Talking about rustic environments, a DIY rustic planter box is also easy to make. In most cases, you’ll only need landscape logs or tree trunks. Cut the planter boxes directly into the trunks and arrange them along the pathway.

34. Tiered Herb Planter Boxes

Ideal for corners or to place next to the walls of the house, tiered herb planter boxes will bring some originality to your space.

Paint the boxes in dark brown and finish the look with a layer of lacquer for a splendid effect.

35. Cinders Blocks Planter Boxes

Cinder blocks can be used in a way similar to the concrete bricks. You can arrange them in any desired shape and use the planters to decorate your patio, yard, or flowerbeds.

For a more original effect, paint the cinder blocks in pastel or bright colors.

36. Monogram Planter Box

If you want to build an original gift, just make a large monogram of wood and divide it into multiple planters with small wooden boards.

Plant a different herb or small succulent into each space to make an original garden.

37. Gardening Table Planter Box

A gardening table can also be transformed into a planter box. Just fix a large wooden box on top of the gardening table and fix it with nails.

A gardening table planter box is ideal to use to create a square foot garden.

38. Birdhouse Roof Planter Box

The roof of a birdhouse can also be transformed into a beautiful planter box. Build edging walls around the roofs, fill the space with potting soil and use the planter to grow small succulents.

With this idea, you’ll get both an original planter and an original birdhouse.

39. Garden Fence Planter Box

A small garden fence usually used as edging for a flower bed can also be used to build a planter box. Or to be more precise, to decorate a wooden planter and make it more original, as shown in the photo above.

Use bright or pastel colors to make your planter box stand out.

40. Square Sink Planter Box

A square sink, but also a shower cubicle, can be used to make an original planter box. It is quite easy. Just fill the object with potting soil and plant your favorite plants.

An old bath tub can also be used in the same way.

41. DIY Fruit Planter Boxes

Fruit boxes can be used in a way similar to the pallets to make original planter boxes. Thanks to the disposition of the wooden boards, you’ll not have to worry about drilling drainage holes.

Use the planters in the garden or suspended on a porch or patio.

42. Recycled Wood Painted Planter Box

With recycled wooden boards, build a painted planter box. If possible, use different types of wood and boards with different lengths and structures.

Paint the whole planter in a solid color and use it to grow contrasting colored flowers.
