I’m always looking for ways to reuse things – especially old furniture. I’m also always looking for creative ways to spruce up my backyard and flower garden. You can’t even imagine how excited I was to come across these different ways that satisfy both of my passions – decorating the flower garden and doing it with old furniture!
If you’ve ever wondered what to do with that old desk or maybe thought that you just have too much unused furniture in your home, this is definitely a collection that you’ll want to save. There are so many creative ways that you can incorporate old pieces of furniture into planters and flower bed decorations.
Now, back to upcycling furniture into garden decorations. Most of these are such easy projects – you literally just have to figure out where you want to place your furnishings. Whether you want to turn an old dresser into a lovely planter for flowers or you have a broken chair that you really can’t sit on anymore – there’s a project in here that will help you turn that chair into a great succulent planter, there’s definitely going to be something in here that you can use to upcycle that furniture and turn your flower bed into a gorgeous display.
My backyard had a lot of tree stumps when we first moved in. I hated those stumps because I felt like they took away from the beauty of the yard. I turned many of them into planters and you can, too.
I absolutely love upcycling and these projects certainly give me something to smile about. Whatever furniture you have that you need to reuse, you are sure to be able to incorporate it into your flower bed design and have a gorgeous garden that is sure to give you somewhere to relax and reflect when the flowers are in bloom. I can’t wait to hear how you’ve decorated your backyard with furniture – Let’s get started!
1. Bathtub Planter
I really love the idea of turning an old bathtub into a planter. This would be great for displaying those gorgeous sunflowers, and the tub doesn’t even have to be in great shape. Even if there are holes, you are going to be able to turn it into a planter that beautifully displays whatever plants you want to house in there. I think trailing plants would also be great – or mix and match to create your own little mini flower bed right there in the tub.Via: gardenbetty
2. Broken Chair Succulent Planter
I’ve had so many broken chairs in my lifetime that I’ve thrown away. I really wish I had thought to use them as planters. I really love the idea of making a little succulent garden from a seat less chair. You can stick the planter right down in the seat and this is a great way to bring dimension into your flower bed. Just sit the chair among your other flowers and it raises those succulents up off the ground so they become the focus of your flower bed.
