Marilyn saw a plant stand like this at a craft fair and decided that she needed one but had her own idea of what it should look like. She sketched out what she wanted hers to look like and I designed it in my CAD program. The next day I made sawdust and came out with a rather nice looking garden chair plant stand. The design is sturdy enough to sit on but I wouldn not suggest using it for a sitting chair. The idea is to place potted plants on it. Maybe a nice vine plant near the back to climb up the back rest would be nice.
