I have finally finished my little potting table that I found in the trash. This is what it looked like when I brought it home. It is an odd squarish shape, it must have been a home made project that someone discarded. Sad for them. Good for me! It’s the perfect compact size for the deck.
I had some leftover Sunburst yellow paint from my Bird Bath Project and I couldn’t resist using it again on this piece. It’s an oil based, high gloss paint from Rustoleum, great for outdoor projects. It took two coats of paint, I didn’t even bother to sand the piece before hand. Rustoleum sticks to anything. That’s why I like it.
We have a couple little succulent gardens on top, but they are easily moved aside for larger planting projects. I am still collecting enough plants to plant in the red makeup case I found at the thrift store. I couldn’t resist the red color.
I found these antiqued red knobs at Hobby Lobby and decided they were just the thing for this piece. I love that place.
I keep my planting supplies such as seeds, soil, twine, and miscellaneous items inside the cabinet. Underneath it, I keep a spare planting tray with my gardening tools. Recycling is always a good thing, and I am always looking for ways to reuse as much as possible. I have found lots of uses for the red tomato can, and also for the red lantern that I rescued from the trash a last summer.
Enjoy the day!
