Success! I adore this color and I could see succulents matching it well.
Then I planted it, using a thick layer of sphagnum moss on the bottom, a "mountain" of amended potting soil in the middle then more moss on the top. I nestled the plants through the moss and tucked it around the plants. I had expected to have to hot-glue or wire the plants or moss in place, but everything just stayed where I put it. Here is the chair planted :
The finished product! Here it is grown in a little more:
I have some more "broken" furniture and other such things for junque art in the future. I can't wait for next season, so I can bring my chair out and spruce it up, it has survived the winter fine, it just isn't as happy as I would like.
