Several years ago my husband bought me this potting bench.
Unfortunately it had become storage on our back porch to the point that I couldn't use it and it was nothing more than an eyesore (to me). You see the back yard belongs to my husband for all of his "collections". I happened to mention that I would love to have my bench over to the side yard so that I could use it for planting this year. Today he woke up and said today is the day and began to clean it up!!! Hallelujah! I think I heard the angels sing!
I didn't get out there soon enough to get a before picture, it was awful! This is just the stuff he took off that he didn't throw away! I have to tell you I was so excited to get it back AND I had just purchased a few spring flowers the other day. And then I thought blog post, blog post! And then I'm thinking of all that I can do to make it something I can put on here. One minute I am cleaning house and the next playing with my potting supplies. So much more fun!
Isn't it cute?
I love my flowers in an old rusty lunch box.
It has this cool little tub where you can put dirt.
But then when you don't need the dirt you put the wooden lid back on top of it.
Lots of storage on the bottom.
And even more on top with drawers and shelves.
I love this old rusted out lantern.
I've had this little out house forever, it's just so cute, can you say that about an out house?
This bird house I painted years ago back in my Mary Englebreit days. ( I adore her!)
This is an old lounge chair of my husbands. I started having him bring over a few of his cool pieces for my photo shoot. Now I am thinking put a little pillow in there and it's the perfect place for me to sit and relax after planting.
Another one of his things, and old tractor seat on a base. Rust =love!
So now I have my own little space in our backyard, thank you honey! I suggested some other "things" we could do in the back yard and he reminded me Rome wasn't built in a day! sigh! So what are you doing to get ready for spring?
