A budget-savvy mum has revealed how she transformed two ‘throw away’ bar stools into stunning oversized planters for the front of her home.

The mum revealed she had been struggling to find the right planters for her tall plants before deciding she would need to make her own.

‘I hadn’t found anything that I love that didn’t cost an arm and a leg,’ she said.

The planters looked like high-end models which would have cost her hundreds of dollars

So she decided to ‘dig into the scrap wood stash’ and repurpose a set of tired $5 stools.

‘I thought that if I flipped them over they might make the perfect frames for pots,’ she mused.

She filled the gaps in with spare wood and painted the pots black with stunning results.

Her post on an upcycle Facebook Page proved very popular with many congratulating her for thinking outside the box.

‘They look awesome. And I think better than the cost of buying them at an arm and a leg worth,’ one woman said.

‘This is the best upcycle I have seen in months, well done,’ one woman said.

‘That was a really smart thing to come up with. They look just like what you would have bought,’ added another.

Others asked for more details, and admitted they too have old stools around the house.

‘Omg I need step by step directions!!! I love these and have 2 old stools sitting around,’ one woman wrote.

‘Could you post directions for going from turning them upside down to materials used to make rest of the sides,’ asked another. 

She then painted them black and popped smaller pots inside - which would hold the plants

The post attracted hundreds of comments and was shared more than 1200 times by impressed homemakers. 

The post showed how the woman used ply wood to fill in the legs before adding cross panels which would double as decorative borders once painted.

She then put her tall pots inside the planters and put them outside the front of her home.

‘They look so beautiful, well done,’ people wrote on the picture of the final product.

Other people also showed off their old chair makeovers with one woman showing off a delightful garden bench.

She explained she couldn’t bear to see the timber go to the tip – given the cost of it at the moment so pot the chairs together with slats and painted it red.
