DIY Potting Bench

It's that time of year again, time to get your hands dirty ladies. What I mean about that is, it's potting season!! Oh, how I love when potting season rolls around and I can dig in some dirt. Sounds kinda silly huh? Oh well, this old gal, has always loved playing in some dirt, something that I have never outgrown. Now, everybody that loves planting, needs a really cute potting bench, don't ya think? With that being said, look what Mr.CC made last week. Oh yes, he made this darling potting bench. Then when he finished it, I got my paint brush out and went to work on it. After that, I just had to fussy it up a bit, so now let's see how she turned out.
                                                 Blessings,
                                                   Linda

Here she is!
Maybe we should name her...any
suggestions?

                        It's always fun adding a few vintage goodies,
                              to add charm to pieces like this one.

                      This old rake head was a must. Then I printed some
                      vintage seed packs and added them. You can also
                      print these seed packs, just head over to my friend
                      Angie's blog. Angie, always has so many cute free
                                printables at her place...just click here.
                        
                                  Old garden tools add a lot of charm too.


                                   You just gotta have a hook or two.

                           Just think, we will all start enjoying
                                 our beautiful flowers soon!

I can't wait!
 
Now, if I'm going to have any
pretty flowers around here this
year, I better get busy potting!

Love your new potting bench, you're inspiring me to go and build my own :) The old rusty garden tools are cute too!

Great potting bench, Linda! I have always wanted one. Unfortunately, living in a condo now there is no room for one. I think these serve a great dual purpose if you are entertaining outside.

Your potting bench is adorable. Last summer we were having work done on the outside of our house so I didn't plant any flowers ~ I'm so looking forward to that this year!
