I have had some boards that I rescued from the stairs leading to our backyard before we added on to our house.
My poor husband, I'm sure, was convinced that I was saving them only to be taken to the trash at a later date, but I didn't!
My only sadness is that I didn't have enough old wood to make the legs, so I had to paint it. I tried to weather the finish, but only time does the real good work! In a few years, it will look exactly like I want it.
But in the meantime, I have made myself a potting bench! I am very proud and love that it can grace my backyard for years to come. I'm already using it as a staging place for some other projects I am working on, that you will see soon!
