I have been wanting a potting bench for awhile. So when a local business closed and were giving away their workbenches, I had to snatch one up and then another.

This is the first one I picked up. It was covered in a thick layer of dust.


Since the benches were free, I did not want to spend a lot of money fixing them up. I painted some shelf brackets that were missing the glass and used random pieces, a drawer front for one, as the shelves. Other hooks and baskets are from the Dollar tree.


The other bench had an uneven top that stuck out in the back. I evened it out with the circular saw so it would go back against the wall. it got a coat of the darker paint on the outside. I had planned on painting the shelves the lighter color.


These will be great for keeping all my stuff organized, make winter storage and potting up easier. I can also used the tops as a summer buffet. I like how the mistint paint I used helps them blend in and look like they belong.
