Potting Bench6:46:00 PM
My goal today was to do something with the
broken potting bench in my yard.
I wanted to recreate it in a creative and fun way.
My first step was to make the old potting bench more stable with wood strips across the sides and the back.
I also had to put the bottom shelf back on because it rotted off years ago.
I added old castors from my workshop to the bottom of each leg.
The original drawer bottom was gone so I screwed the drawer together and added a new bottom.
I had an old gate in the yard that I trimmed to the size of the table and attached to the top of the table using a lot of supports and L brackets!
Next came the paint, a watered down white wash, then all the flat surfaces got a coat of Poly.
Now I was full on getting creative!
I added a "La Jardin" sign to the front and an old window to one side.
with a galvanized bin on the other side.
I had fun adding all kinds of funky hinges, hooks and knobs to hang the tools.
I added slate tiles to create a work surface on the top.
Then the new drawer got a pretty toile liner.
I found the original tray for the little hidden soil holder under the lid.
I am very ready for Spring!
