Awaiting! Potting Bench/Table Addition

This is a basic design you can get online. With a few changes of our own.
With 2 x 4 s and 2 x 5.5 that we had on hand we began construction.
Every thing was cut to size.
Cut and nailed together.
bench/table in place, ready for solid stain.
This is my craft cottage with the addition of a potting area.We had to add a extension to the potting area deck for safety.
And here she is! All painted in a solid stain by Olympic paint called Seafoam.
I added chicken wire for extra detail and storage.
Towel rack added for clean ups.
These are pots that had a makeover to look old, they provide storage for soil and other materials.
The top shelf has some collectibles and storage items. Lets not forget my tea cup chandelier,( you find out on many of these items on my blog here on hometalk).
Hanging storage provided.
Well here she is! Now time to plant and CREATE! Thanks for coming by !!!

Suggested materials:

  • 2 x 4 and 2 x 5.5 pressure treated wood  (Lowes)
  • Nails, solid stain  (lowes)
