Today I recycled my old swing seat chair into a planter. The roof of the swing seat had long since rotted away, but the chair section was in reasonable condition. I was running short on planting space so I spent the afternoon in the sun making this.
A quick sand, a coat of stain and a liner and its done! I just need some more compost to fill it. There was very little left for the tip, infact I may keep it incase I get a wood burner for the garden at some stage.
I have never worked like this with wood and I made a few mistakes, but it works and its solid.
