I've been dying for a potting bench for a long time now... somewhere to organize all my gardening stuff. I wanted to get it out of the garage and closer to my backyard garden. It occurred to me recently that it didn't have to be an actual potting bench; those are expensive! So I started keeping my eyes open at garage sales for some sort of furniture piece that could be repurposed into a little organized potting space and just last week stumbled upon this!
It was only $5! I don't actually know what you call one of these... it's like a kitchen cart thing. It came with casters to roll around but I didn't use them.
Isn't it great?! I found some tiles leftover from our kitchen and made a little "floor". It has a great, shallow drawer that I put my packets of seeds into.
Plenty of room for my plastic buckets that I use for weeding or harvesting in the late summer. A big 5-gallon tub filled with soil. Extra pots.
Oh, that lilac looks familiar, does it? I may have sprayed a few extra things yesterday while working on my teapot. Those are actually gerber baby puff containers. I kept saving them, thinking I could do something with them. They make cute little containers for garden tools!
And they make a great outdoor vase for a few sprigs of rosemary!
I also half-sprayed this plastic pot that a plant came in and repotted some succulents into it. Love it. Must buy more spray paint.
But what to do with the towel bar on my 'new' potting bench? I don't really need a towel out there... Any ideas?
