Waaaay baaaack when I posted this potting bench I made shortly after building it from old doors and an old workbench with thrift store iron and an old enamel pan. Here it is today...placed on our side porch and decorated with thrift store finds. I use the old Carnation milk box for soil. I get so much use out of this bench. ENJOY! Bear Hugs! Kirk

I like all the changes, potty will look beautiful when that plant fills out. The 2 little birds on birdbath next to it are adorable. Scottie dog is cute too. Pigs & bears, interesting collection, don't think they like each other much so wise to keep them apart! Still love that bench!! Jan

Oh I love all the recycling you did to build this potting bench & then stained it such a beautiful shade of almost copper! Your pig collection is just perfect for this & all your enamelware & birds & rustic goodies! Love, love, love this! Thanks for the updated pics ...& looks like your porch is a perfect spot for it now! Jeanne S.
