Welcome! I know I say this a lot, but I am really excited to show you my fairy garden chair planter! Remember I shared in my last post that I had another old free chair to refinish?

Well, I wanted to do something really different with this chair. Look what I did:

Like so many of you, I am thinking Spring. I love to have unique planters on my deck, where I spend a lot of time.

The chair that I was given by my lovely sister was an antique spindle chair, but the seat was broken. I was going to reupholster the seat and paint it, however, I really didn’t need another side chair.

Here is the original chair:

I’ve seen garden chair planters before where people put a plant in the chair. I’ve always loved them & thought this chair would be perfect for that.

When I was at the craft store, I saw an entire end cap with fairy gardens supplies and had a light bulb moment! 

I thought it would be really cute to create a fairy garden in the chair and keep it on my back deck to enjoy when I am reading & blogging!

The individual items can be a little expensive.  However, I drive by the craft store each day on my way home, and this week they had a 60% off coupon.

I stopped by each day to purchase an item for my little fairy garden. This really kept the cost down.

I wanted the chair to look old & chippy as if it had been in the garden for years, so I did a mix up of paints using white as the base and adding light brush strokes of blue.

Next, I sanded it to show some of the natural wood.  A white planter that actually was a perfect fit for the chair was added.

Once spring arrives, I will add spring flowers, but for now I’m keeping this inside by my fireplace.

Burlap was added along with a coco liner and moss, then the little fairy garden pieces.

It was finished off with a little DIY burlap banner to hang across the back of the chair saying “believe”.  I’m excited to add it to my back deck. The little girls next door will get a kick out of it.
