Reclaimed Door Potting Bench


Our next door neighbor is an avid gardener and was tired of having to pot her plants on the ground. We came up with an inexpensive fix for her problem and it only cost $15!

This old door was given to us by a friend, at not charge, because the bottom of the door was warped and damaged.

We cut a few inches off of the end to get rid of the rotted parts and used a clamp and wood glue to pull the door back together where the panels had begun to loosen.

We attached eye bolts to the shed and to the door and used lengths of chain to support the door.

Hinges allow the door to fold up close the garden shed when the "potting bench" isn't needed.

With the bench folded up, there is plenty of room for our neighbor to reach her compost pile, which is across from the potting bench.
