Pretty Green Potting Bench9:07:00 PM
This little piece was even tossed out
by the church... Out to the curb it went...
until we came along that is...
You would think the church would have shown a little mercy...
but I guess they just couldn't see it's hidden potential.
But I did....
I saw a pretty green potting bench in it's future.
I dragged the piece into my garage and went at it with
a fresh coat of paint.
I painted the outside with Behr paint with primer
in Fresh Olive.
I painted the inside with
Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I coated the
inside of the well and inside the shelves
with Polycrylic sealer for ultimate protection from dirt.
The well is perfect for planting and the little drawers
are just the right size for seeds and hand tools.
I added new black knobs and handles to the doors
and drawers then added a large handle
to the side to hold a towel.
Admittedly this is almost too pretty for a potting
bench but I'm imagining it in someone's indoor
porch piled high with plants and terra cotta pots.
I'm thrilled with the color and I love the black
knobs and handles against the fresh green color.
I saw the potential in this old cast off and I'm glad I did!
