We purchased this potting bench at a really nice discount.  It has a slight blemish and was the last one in stock.  It's the perfect setting for an outdoor bar with just a few upgrades. 

We added a bottle opener which we've had sitting in our junk drawer for like forever.  A bathroom towel bar purchased on clearance was added to the front of the bench.  The hooks hold an ice scoop, wine opener and wine charms. 

The bench has a reservoir for potting soil that we could use for ice and drinks but we decided to use a galvanized tub for that purpose and use the entire bench surface for pouring wine, mixing drinks, etc.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Great repurpose!  Of course, that goes for anything that one turns into a bar, but yours is CLASSY.   Roll Eyes

The hubby and offer to be testers for your bar. No charge of course since we know you. Smiley

This is really pretty and suits the atmosphere of the other pieces on the new deck. Smiley

You did a great job on this, this looks fantastic on your deck, and will be so useful.  I'd sure love to come over for drinks, sounds like quite a party from all of the comments on here, lol.
