We’ve been spending all of our spare time in the garden lately. The passing soaking rains, followed by sunshine have left impressive growth on our snap peas and carrot seedlings among other things. We’re already harvesting salad greens. I can’t wait to share more from our garden as it matures.
In the meantime, I did a little work for your garden.
How cute is this potting bench? It conveniently doubles as a stand alone cocktail bar on a patio or deck too! Also, the sides and shelves fold in for easy peasy storage.
I love the cottage blue color. The bench is newly constructed from pressure treated raw pine. I mixed up some milk paint in Eulalie’s Sky and applied one coat. It absorbed evenly into the raw wood like a stain leaving a rustic finish in some areas where the wood grain and knots showed through.
To finish it and ensure durability outside in the elements, I applied a coat of tung oil. This will protect the wood and repel water. Tung oil can be re-applied annually if necessary.
The potting bench and all of the plants pictured here are for sale at West End Garage. The paint is too!
Can’t you just smell the rosemary? My favorite!
