From junk car-seat to terrace sofa

 

Can you recognized this seat? If you’re a car owner it looks very familiar to you, I’m sure. Well, this an old car seat that my husband’s friend owned. His friend’s son had a car shop repair but eventually closed, so there were some car accessories left in the shop backyard like this one lying around and candidate for rotting, so my ever recycling-enthusiast husband asked this car seat from his friend to bring home. As he was already have something in his mind on what to do with this junk. The same one he did with our DIY terrace bench.

A few days later he started assembling materials he needed. He bought woods and began constructing frame, spray-painted it black, for the arm and back-rests, he got it from our old computer chairs, so don’t be surprise if they were not of same shape. lol.. cleaned and fitted the whole car seat then added the back-rests and arm-rest last. And that’s how it looks now, it is placed in the terrace where we can sit and relax comfortably, even some friends who came by are very impressed, specially his friend that gave this junk car seat was surprised at the outcome. lol.. When it comes to furniture, I don’t need to buy online as hubby is always to the rescue.

Adding plants into your home not only beautify but helps in removing some of the toxins in the air inside and outside your home. Giving out fresh oxygen and eliminate harmful carbon dioxide in the environment, thus making our space more healthier to live on.

We are living in the city and having a big spacious lawn is out of the question unless you are a millionaire that can afford such a big space, which we are not. Even if we want to plant various fruit bearing trees, space is always the problem, so we just make do of what is available for us.  Growing small plants, veggies and decorative plants in plant boxes and pots like in the photos is the only option.

Here are the plants in my small terrace, to occupy all available space I made hanging plants, all real , no fake or made of plastics plants in the house for me, lol. These made our surroundings green and relaxing, just staring all the greens around make us proud with our efforts in taking care of them plus the fruits of our labor when we harvest fresh and organic veggies from our urban garden. Same feeling when you find the best chorus pedal for your kid’s guitar.
