This is one hard working area of my garden which serves multiple functions. I was able to build it because Mr. Fix-it and I salvaged all of the wood from an old deck.
Not one to waste things, the wood sat around for a year or so until I was able to build this bench. Potting benches need not be fancy-just functional. I made sure to build this one low so I could reach the counter easily (I am short), and I wanted lots of storage for pots and soil out of sight-hence the curtain. Someday I will hook up a faucet to the the two dollar porcelain sink on the left side of the counter, then I will really be in business.
For now I mainly use my potting bench for privacy, storage and display. The painted words say, "Pot me up Scotty!" and "Gardeners know the best dirt". Personal touches are the best kind in a garden don't you think?
