The Perfect Piece for a Porch

This time of year in North Carolina is such a tease. Sunny days that touch 60 (and sometimes 70) degrees leave me with a raging case of spring fever. But then the reality of winter returns and spring seems light years away. To quell my #itching4Spring, I'm revisiting a piece I completed last year. I revamped an old desk into a potting bench/porch serving piece/jack of all trades for outdoor living. The desk got a coat of paint in a happy color and some vintage hardware for its drawers. A heavy sanding and some fun accessories and it makes the perfect spot for pots, soil and lots of flowers. It would fit right in on a covered porch with drinks cooling in a galvanized bucket and cocktail napkins in its drawers. It's the perfect piece to celebrate spring on the porch.

    Thank you Kathy Elizabeth! I would love to have the big Southern porch... My mom has one and it's our favorite place to spend time. We have the screened porch, though and we practically
