My Potting Bench - Coffee Table Story

6:35:00 AM

You may have heard that I opened my first little booth.

It was a very small space stuffed with projects made on Homeroad. 

Last weekend I got a call that someone wanted to buy the potting bench that was in my booth... problem was it held my entire display. 

I hadn't intended on selling it, it was really just for display.

But in the end I did what any red blooded shop keeper would do... I sold it. 

On my way out the door to re-arrange my booth, I grabbed the coffee table out of the middle of my living room to replace the potting bench.

Ironically, this coffee table used to be a potting bench before I cut it down and turned it into a coffee table. 

It also used to have a bottom rack that I changed into a pot rack for my kitchen.

Don't blink around here... things change by the minute.

Now my coffee table was in my booth and looking just as good as the potting bench did.

I was just about to wonder how long it would take to sell the coffee table and wouldn't you know it...

it was gone the very next day right before closing!

Soooo... I grabbed an old sewing machine table that was laying around... and here we go again!

I might need to consider going into the furniture business.
