I have been mulling over potential and real projects, yet again ...
I seriously think we should take a year off of renovations and said "projects".
Some how they keep sneaking into my brain while "they" think I am watching TV and can not notice rouge brain cells forming a plan.
We have to get the deck coated and sealed this year ... so I began to think (I know .. a stretch, but it does happen occasionally) .. what about an outdoor potting bench in front of the shed ? ..
It would help me do up pots without bending or kneeling on hard surfaces, and I might just be able to actually see what I am doing properly ?
Ironically ? I have a potting bench inside the shed, but it is more a storage unit than a working potting bench ..
I am even so down to earth as to think ahead of time and the next UGH !! winter season, as to plan covering it with a tarp to save on it during bad weather ..
I better watch out for Grace and her random drive by tarp shootings !
So I started to scroll through quite a few of them on Pinterest and WOW !
They range from purely utilitarian, to pieces of garden art .. big ones ... but still gorgeous.
Mine will be practical ... a work horse ... strong silent type : ) PERFECT in other words ?
But maybe I might jazz it up a bit, when no one is looking,which is the glory of an eight foot fence.
BEST investment EVER !!!!
In any case .. here are some samples I found on Pinterest just to give you an idea ...
The last picture will be the one I am keen on ... fingers crossed it might just happen !
Is this gorgeous or what ? .. love the fret work and dark stain, plus the wash bowel cut out.
The extra shelving and lattice work at the back really make this attractive .. how about those spouts?
This could make me want to collect small watering cans too !
Tap handles that serve as hooks for tools ... the wire back to put "S" hooks on to hang other what nots.
A hose attachment .. perfect !
Almost the same design but such a pretty colour .. lots of ideas working here !
So the one I have chosen is a very plain Jane, but terrific "bones" to work with.
So I am moving on from the mulling over stage to "YES !!!" please !!! haha
We shall see how far I get when I already have so much to do as it is .. but I really think this would be the perfect helper with my garden missions : )
How about you other gardeners .. do you have a potting bench or plan to have one ?
