Potting Table

We finished the Potting Table I showed you HERE.  Here are a few pictures to refresh your memory.

I found this door at the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Alamogordo, NM, for just $1.00

It moved to New England with us and I planted it in the backyard.  I'm pretty sure our neighbor hated it!  He let his hedges grow just a little bit taller right behind the door!

The door didn't seem to like the cold weather and the snow, so I took it out and brought it inside till I figured out something else to do with it.  And then came Pinterest!  I found potting tables made from old doors and decided that's what I wanted to do.  

We found leftover house paint in the basement and although I wouldn't have picked these colors if I was buying paint, I decided FREE is GOOD! 

Here is the potting table now painted to match the house.  I'd still like to add a shelf above the candle holders, but for now I'm finished.

  5. What a practical way to use the door... It looks really pretty!

    I love taking random items and producing a one-of-a-kind piece of art!

    Perfect post for the letter "P".
