Last year around this time I took an old half wooden, half wicker chair and turned it into a planter for my front porch. I loved the look of it and I liked the white color well enough, but I don't like how it blended too much with the light colored exterior of the house. I painted it a bright red and love the result. I planted some purple flowers, which I don't know the name of, to give it a little contrast. I wish I knew the name of the flowers...I lost the tag and I bought so many flowers that day I can't remember now. If you know by looking, please comment!
