Potting Bench

Summer time potting bench for the wife. Anniversary present to her.
I used an original old door that came from our house and a window for a back. Removed a few panes of glass and inserted colored glass for color. The overhead is an old shutter door. The shelves are cedar and the trim is barnwood from a barn I resided. Went antique shopping and bought a few items like door knobs, faucet handles and watering cans for hanging hooks and such. Found two old wheels that I have no idea where they came from and put handles on the bench to make it easier to move from place to place. The signs came from old antique fruit crates. I wired in an old light overhead for night time glow. No finish just natural colors.

Maybe some ideas to pass along. Thanks…......................
