Eight Amazing DIY Potting Benches

As summer approaches and we are spending more and more time on the back porch, I keep thinking how one corner of that porch would be so much nicer with a potting bench--not to mention I'd have a place to put my gardening junk tools.  Check out these amazing benches created by some equally amazing bloggers--hopefully I'll be adding my own photo soon!

Robin at ROBINS NESTING PLACE made this DIY Potting Bench 
From Rummage Sale Junk.  No, I'm not kidding.

This very cool potting bench was featured at Centsational Girl.  I love the spade handle!  Mine will definitely have to have a drawer so I can do this.

I love that she upcycled not one, but two doors for the back.

Thanks for looking, and until next time...
