We love our front hosta garden… the different textures of the leaves… the different sizes and heights.
There are hundreds of different types, and we’ve collected our hostas over time
They’ve filled in very nicely, and the front shady garden is a very peaceful place to be on a hot summer day.
But it does need a little color and whimsy.
Enter this vintage metal chair that I found at the Re-store for $5. It’s very sturdy and will work beautifully in the garden.
I was waiting to find another one before I put this one into the garden. Not a match per se, but a chair that would complement it, but I just couldn’t wait any longer so one will have to do for now.
I also found this lamp at a garage sale. It was just $3. I cut off the electrical cord because I don’t plan on using it in the house.
And we already had this little metal table.
I shared these thrifted $1 metal teacups and chicken wire teapot a while back. They’re so cute, and will be the perfect little containers for this project.
To keep in the soil I lined them with spare bits of cocoa fibre.
I spray painted the chair a bright turquoise, the lamp a hot pink, and the table a lovely sunny yellow.
This wire planter makes a perfect garden lampshade.
To make it super easy I used a ready made hanging planter that came with pink geraniums and a few other flowers in the chair.
The teacups and teapot were spray painted a happy green, and they sit on a vintage black grill for a tray.
And it’s green tea time.
Can I pour you a cup of hens and chicks? 🙂
Don’t forget to pin it!
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
