This post is exciting because I L*O*V*E to garden & the junk was free! I got the cute retro chair at a garage sale for free. It called my name from the garbage pile. The ladies at the sale were surely snickering as I drove off with my seat less chair! I think I was snicker too. Only a fool would give away such a cute chair with garden possibilities.
I added a (free) dish drain rack to the seat area. It was a perfect fit! If I was worried, zip ties would hold it on securely. I wasn't too worried. Next I added some cocoa fiber liner that is commonly used in hay racks & wire hanging baskets. It was $2.39 a foot (3 feet wide). I had some on hand from last years projects.
