Potting Bench Inspiration

I love to garden so when I see a photo of a potting bench my heart goes pitter patter.
Love this old white one!

A potting bench that's old and weathered...all the better!
The mossy cloche.... divine!

A zinc topped potting bench covered with pots filled with flowers.
Sigh......love it so!

Sometimes you need to use your imagination and turn something into a potting bench.
Weathered pots are so yummy!

So guess what I'm working on right now?
It didn't start out as a potting bench, but it will be when I'm finished.
Stay tuned.....

  1. Those are all lovely! We're apartment dwellers so all I have is my little deck:) I do dream of a potting bench and a greenhouse though!

  2. I loved those pictures Lisa! A potting bench would be so nice. It wouldn't take much to whip one up using scraps around the house. That would be a great sunny day project. Thanks for sharing!
