Potting Table Made From Reclaimed Wood

You won't believe what we did with this old wood. In less than an hour, it became a great potting table for the garden. And to top it off, we added an old piece from a sideboard to give it some character.
We found these 20' lengths of wood stacked in the garage the day we moved in.
The measurements were taken, a shelf was requested and some extra height for my 5'10" frame and it was done in less than an hour.
The shelf provides storage for little extras like the egg basket I use to gather produce from the garden. The old chicken feeder is there in hopes that one day our town will allow us to have chickens within town limits.
The mirror was painted in ASCP French Linen to give it a weathered look in order to tie it together with the old barn door that sits against the back of the garage.
Use the garden hose set on "jet", the piece was "wet distressed" for an aged look and protected with outdoor polyurethane.
"Never Enough Thyme" was painted on the mirror using chalk paint, a white paint pen and a Sharpie to highlight the edges.
