Potting Bench

When we replaced the old front door on our 100 year old home, I couldn't bring myself to throw the old one away. This is how we transformed it into a potting bench with repurposed lumber and few new bits and pieces.

    Believe me, the thought cross our minds. Someone had drilled big ugly hole to bolt it to the wall in the cellar...and it was dinged up pretty good. I use this bench all the time--not just a decorator piece, so at least it is knowing purpose again.

      Kathy Hammond Fridley Your mention of the huge leaves tells me you probably have a Hydrangea macrophylla (big-leaf hydrangea). If your winter is milder and you don't prune, you should certainly see blooms again next year. Good luck!
