A metal chair without a seat is a perfect opportunity to make a creative statement in a garden. Give it a vivid coat of paint, build a simple planter box to fit the frame, and plant it up with interesting succulents, like Barbara Weirich did in her Benton Harbor, Michigan, garden.

    The garden is beautiful and the steel sculpture steals the show. The chair is nicely planted but maybe needs a different location in the beautiful garden.
