I happened to be at our local Menards building center and spied a work bench kit, and it was only $40. I remember how excited I was that I would have a potting bench.
The lumber in in the kit was definitely seconds with lots of knots and such, but that just added to the charm of my rustic potting bench. I stained the bench as soon as my husband put it together. I still love it many, many years later. Now it is a home to my watering can collection as well as a few potted plants.
In 2010, one of my friends who happens to be a gifted artist painted a great sign "Geraniums for Sale" to hang over my potting bench. It's still perfect! Here are a few pictures over the years...
We just went through a real cold snap here, and I enjoyed looking at my gardening photos. I hope you like them too!
