One of my favorite things I did for our yard in Fort Worth was a little chair filled with thyme. I had knocked the seat out and used chicken wire and moss to create a sweet little garden. I decided to do the same thing again here.
I have been looking for about 3 years for a cheap old ladder back or ice cream chair...to no avail.
We are close enough to New Orleans that anything old is automatically labeled "antique" and I was NOT about to pay 30 bucks for a chair I planned to demolish. Sorry, I'm cheap that way.
Anyway, my sister (thank you!) gave me this sweet little chair.
I tore out the caning, painted it and gave it a couple coats of polyurethane....and now looks like this...
I used a coconut liner this time around instead of chicken wire because the wire kept sticking me. If it doesn't hold up, I'll redo it next year.
It has verbena, ivy, creeping fig and purple oxalis in it. I can't wait for everything to fill in. I know it is going to look amazing in this little niche. I just need to relocate the ladybug house now....maybe.
once the Morning Glory took over during the summer....
