Update: Shabby Chair Project
I finally planted the succulents on the shabby chair; not much to look at now but when they fill in it should look fabulous. These have been in about a week now and seem to be doing very well. I am keeping them a bit on the dry side until they set roots. These cutting all came from my husbands succulents that he has planted around the gardens. I put some taller crassula perforatas in the back. These will grow tall and cover the back portion. The many varieties of sempervivums, aeonium and echeveria should fill in nicely and make a 'cushion' for the chair.
I painted the chair with Behr paint Cilantro Cream. I only used half of this small container so the whole project only cost a little over $3.00; the chair was a gift from a good friend. I may insert some tiles in the opening that once had wicker, in the back section, or maybe some copper wire woven in, not sure yet. If you have any ideas let me know.
