Last year while doing all my spring planting I decided I needed a potting bench and since we had a pile of

|Door and almost matching side light door|
We went to visit our local Habitat ReStore one day and found an old door and two side lights that matched close enough to say they were all a set. The whole set cost me $12 which was a great buy cause they were trying to get of things before their big move to the new location. We always check there first before going to the hardware store. The side light panels are really cool, the one on the right has a little secret door.. The center panel of glass was cut out of the door so that I could do some type of stained glass treatment with it but
I've been lazy I haven;t found my inspiration yet. Yea...that it.
The hubby put all of our pieces together and made me this beautiful potting bench last year.

I thought it would be the perfect place for my potting bench so SF and I brainstormed and got busy with more parts and pieces we had paying around. Some old shingles we bought at the ReStore, the scallops in the front is reclaimed fencing, recycled 2X4's doubled make the posts, recycled signboards make the roof. A couple of hours and some sweat, a few design flaws and fixes and I had a brand new area to do all my potting and garden stuff in. I was able to display my collection of galvanized buckets and water cans.
I Love my new potting bench and shelter!
