When I purchased my new "sink topped" potting bench this spring, I gave away my old Menard's workbench kit/potting bench. In previous years, I used to display my watering can collection on the old bench.
The sink bench did not have a tall enough bottom shelf for the watering can collection, so I pulled out yet another Menard's workbench (found in our shed), that had once been used as a TV/Stereo stand for my oldest daughter at her college apartment. I added a coat of semi-transparent outdoor stain, and it was perfect for watering cans on the deck side of my house. This is a folding wooden workbench that I think I originally purchased for about $40.
This folding bench is quite a bit narrower than the old one, but it held four watering cans and a couple birdhouses very nicely.
The bench was placed in a bed of creeping and wooly thyme and sedums. A rusty milk can and farm tools complete the outdoor vignette.
And, between the sedums and the hostas is an old painted window screen with daisies and dragonflies from a local shop "The Tattered Angel" and three terra cotta pots of coleus.
I took over the watering chores today, but I have a lot of dead heading to do later on this week. Nice to see the kids but nice to be home too.
