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 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.
A smoky blue color updated the worn pine wood.  Lots of ledges and drawers give plenty of space for storage.
