When cleaning out the garage inspires instead of just tires........

Last summer I forced myself to clean out our garage. Underneath all of our junk were a few hidden treasures. When I cleared off of our old workbench I was inspired to pull it out of the garage, where it had been sorely underused, and repurpose it as a potting bench. We use it so much more now! Check this out for all the details http://www.ourfifthhouse.com/2011/06/potting... and see how it's still being used in our patio here. http://www.ourfifthhouse.com/2012/04/2012-su...

    Wow, looks great! Thanks for the inspiration. I have a similar workbench that I've been using as a potting bench but didn't even think of sprucing it up. I love what you've done! I may have to be a copy cat! Thanks for sharing!

    Every time I walk in the house through the garage, I feel stressed and overwhelmed. I love your potting bench! I know that I don't have any tables out in my garage, but I'm definitely inspired to get busy organizing.

    I just pulled a shelf out of the fire pit that my boyfriend was going to burn! I told him I would find a new use for it and you just gave me the perfect idea! Thank you!

    I am inspired! What a wonderful creative imagination you have. It's hard for me to see a piece of junk and repurpose it, but I am learning.
