Our first assignment, for the month of May, is to turn an older/or non-traditional object into a unique and decorative planter or refurbish old planters. I have already completed two projects and hope to have a third by the end of May!
My first project is a "Rockin' Hummingbird Garden"!
my addiction to Pinterest! I love hummingbirds and butterflies, so my natural inclination is to do something to attract more to my garden. And so the idea for a Rockin' Hummingbird Garden was born!
I removed the old seat and back from the rocker, aggravating my asthma with the dust and mold spores. After a good cleaning with bleach the rocker was ready for primer!
I already had the large container that fit perfectly into the seat! It was pretty old and ugly and needed a good scrubbing to be prepped for the Valspar Plastic Paint. The two smaller pots were purchased from Lowe's.
So I primed and painted my old rocking chair and the plastic containers!
I attached an old lamp harp to the back of the rocker for a hummingbird perch!
I had to have these petunias that I saw at Lowe's! Purple with the perfect complimentary green on the outer edges! They will be beautiful once they grow and start trailing down the rocker!
Disclosure: As a blogger for Lowe’s Creative Ideas Garden Club Network I was provided with a Lowe’s gift card to purchase the materials for my project.
