Happy March’s first morning…
With anticipation of much needed rain here in Southern California,
I began to prepare my gardens for Spring.
Planting, trimming,weeding & fertilizing. Then I crossed my fingers for rain!
While doing so, I realized a potting bench would of been very useful.
I’m going to get started designing & building my own potting bench this spring using reclaimed and vintage materials.
Finding inspiration for potting benches was interesting….
many different types of potting benches.
Some have access to running water…
Drawers for holding seed packets, gloves & garden tools is essential.
A top shelf to hold my collection of vintage water cans would be perfect!
Potting benches are so versatile.
Utilitarian & beautiful…
My dilemma is….
I love seeing them indoors too
as a serving buffet,
or even a kitchen island.
I know it may still be snowing where you are,
you might not be planting just yet.. .
but it’s the perfect time to feel inspired
plan what accessories you will need in the garden this spring.
My Design tip: Using vintage reclaimed material for a potting bench is a great DIY project. Figure out what size works for your space and have fun building a one of a kind garden accessory.
Spring is on it’s way!
