You could complete the first stages of this project in a weekend, the last (optional) stage takes longer.
This is my first Instructable, so I apologize in advance for any breeches in protocol....
Step 1: Prepping the chair
All of the other supplies were things I already had, including the plants. Shown is the spray paint, moss in a bowl (more on that later), and the coconut seedling starters you'll see in the planting step.
The painting step took the longest due to dry time between coats; I did it over the course of a weekend.
Step 2: Planting
Next I took some succulents and planted them in the seed starters in a semi circle.
Then I took some baby tears (ground cover) that were growing nearby and placed them on the dirt around the succulents. I watered the whole thing with worm tea.
This process took a little less than an hour. You could stop here and you'll have the same look as my first image, or... you can see why the moss is in the bowl.
