Mom wanted a potting bench so I proposed this style. I think it looks just as good unpainted but she really liked the milk paint idea (Bayberry Green) I think it looks great either way. Finished with Spar Urethane for extra durability in the elements. Top painted with latex flat black. She will keep it on a covered porch so it’s sure to last a decade or two.
I went with cedar as redwood is not common in Kansas. Was a fun project that took quite a bit of time, but I learned a lot in the process. Some day I will design my own furniture and put what I have learned to good use. No fancy joinery here, just screws and nails here and there.
Thanks for looking!
