Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project- making a flowering seat.
Spring had sprung in Australia and we’ve been doing the annual spring clean for a few weeks now.
Part of the process is getting rid of things or transforming them, that are no longer useful.
If you read my post Trash to Treasure, It’s Easy, you’ll get some great tips for transforming things you cannot bear to part with.
For me this year it was a silly, broken chair.
The thing about that chair that had been sitting in storage for a few years was that my sons had sat on it while studying for important school exams, such as the School Certificate and High School Certificate.
It has history and memories of the days when this house was bursting with the loud voices and music of teenage boys.
How could I possibly part with it?
A year ago I put it outside in readiness to put on the footpath for a council collection. I just kept finding reasons not to leave it out.
Now, a broken chair just looks like rubbish, no matter how many memories it holds.
So I decided to make it pretty by turning it into a flowering seat and transform it into something useful and worthy of keeping.
