Grass Armchair


5d4df025663b5124be41308837bd9ceb

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…a build your own Grass Armchair!

Are you sick and tired of hauling your outdoor furniture out season after season? What about when a big storm, like Hurricane Sandy is coming, and you have to hustle to get all of your outdoor furniture put away? Well, when the weather man gives you that “secure your outdoor furniture” warning, you can laugh at him and rest easy knowing that’s one less chore for you to do…because this isn’t going anywhere when the winds start to howl!

With this fine kit, all you have to do is assemble the pre-cut cardboard pieces, fill the open crevices with dirt, sprinkle some grass seed on top, and watch it grow! It’s the Chia Pet of outdoor furniture, my friends!

Doesn’t that look like the mecca of comfort? Although, I would have to say that mowing it is likely a huge pain in the ass.

I do advise not sitting on it to read your morning paper, as it is likely to be a little dewy…and perhaps you shouldn’t wear white when you sit on it either. Grass stains are kind of tough to get out.

If you’re all about the “going green” thing, and have no interest in ever rearranging your outdoor furniture, then start scouring the internet and finding a spot in the yard! It retails for between $115 and $150.00, and there are a variety of sites touting it’s environmentally friendly awesomeness.

Boot Planters


Look at what I found on Pinterest today…Boot Planters. What in the hell is with people recycling things to put plants in? First the Bra Planter, and now this?  The only thing I can almost remotely see is taking a pair of your child’s little rain boots that they’ve grown out of and planting something in it for a season. It can be a cute little crafty thing for you and your kid.  However, buying two dozen rain boots, planting stuff in them, and thinking that looks nice in your yard is stupid.  Does this person have functioning eyes? I have to question whether she actually does because this looks ridiculous. Perhaps someone should tell this woman that there is a new fangled item out to put her plants in…called pots. They definitely cost less than two dozen rain boots and looks a hell of a lot nicer. If she wants to recycle her rain boots so badly, she can just do the duct tape boot thing, OR she could just throw them out like everyone else does,  OR she could throw them in her recycling bin if it makes her happy to be so green. Just don’t use them as planters.

The Bra Planter


Look at what I found on Pinterest today…A Bra Planter!  OMFG! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times people have actually repinned this under “Gardening”, “Home Decor” and “For the Yard”. Yes, there are actually people who think this is a good idea.

One of the pins even includes the directions:

Spray painted bra hanging planter. Fabric sewn to the bottom, layered with chicken wire, soil and flowers. Fun and sassy!

SASSY?!? No, that is flat out Whiskey Tango!

First of all, there is no reason to upcycle your bra! When it gets all stretched out, THROW IT THE HELL OUT! I am racking my brain trying to figure out what would even possess someone to come up with this. I’ve got nothing. Here’s a thought…splurge a little on some pots that can hang on a fence people…anything but this!

Secondly, look at that stained up piece of shit! I’m hoping it got stained from watering the plants after the poor choice of upcycling, and not before. How can anyone think this is a good look in their yard? Imagine going to someone’s house for a BBQ and seeing that? What would you even say?!? “Hey, I like the way your old bra color coordinates with your flowers?”  Can you imagine the looks on the faces of the other moms when they come over to pick their child up from a play date? Those play dates would come to a screeching halt at the sight of that.

I cannot believe the comments people have written under some of them either:

* “The bigger, the better with a bra planter!”

* “Not if you wear an A cup! Two measly pansies!”

* “Your cup runneth over!”

* “Give your plants “a lift” with a bra planter!”

* “Tacky, maybe. Do I like it? Hell yes!”

What a pack of assholes! That is such a bad idea that I am almost at a loss for words. This just may be the worst idea I have ever seen on Pinterest!

The Bra Planter…I dub thee Unpinteresting and then some!
