We were given an old deck off of my Great Aunt and Uncles house. They no longer wanted it and had plans to burn it. So we salvaged it and made a potting bench! We also built a new deck for Edyths playhouse, but that’s another story. This is where we decided to put the potting bench. I nicknamed this space my hot box garden box years ago when I moved in. A large box tucked up in a corner in full sun most of the day.
I happened to have some old skids lying around that I disassembled and used for the backer boards. Which I think turned out just lovely! We also added a rain barrel and garden boxes. We were also given some old lattice that I painted and used for the potting bench. I am that girl, that girl that loves reusing and repurposing!! There was even enough skid stuff left over for a stand for a super cool metal trash can to store my potting soil in!! This has made gardening so much more fun!!! What a transformation and all with repurposed materials!! A dream come true right here!!
