Had some old chairs and decided to add to my old cherry tree some new "chairies".

Neat idea, love the red. I wonder how it would look if you put a hole in the center of some or each chair and added a flower pot filled with impatients or any other shade loving plant? Just a thought. :)

Great conversation starter!! You must have them wired on or wind would blow them off of nails or hooks, I would think! Is the tree dead or still producing, sure looks big & now so chairy!! Jan

Glad everyone enjoyed. The tree is dead and the chairs are held on with hooks. In the spring my wife plans on putting pots of flowers on the chairs. One of the chairs had exactly that as chelcass mentioned, we had flowers on it and then decided to hang them up.
