~ Part 2 ~ Building a Potting Bench ~

Part 2 ~ Building a Potting Bench
If you missed reading Part 1 ~ read HERE.
I had so much fun building this potting bench from scratch. From scratch...what does
that mean. In cooking it means taking ingredients and putting them 
together to make a delicious dish.
In potting bench terms it means taking materials and building
them into... in this case... a potting bench.
The blue cast iron sink was just hanging out on the sidewalk
waiting on me to pick it up...FREE SCORE!!!
My engineer and builder man brother stopped by the other day 
and helped me finish the top. 
I didn't know how {or trust myself to be on a ladder with a circular saw} to cut off the
tall boards from 8 feet to 7 feet.  He made it look so easy.
So he cut off the vertical boards to the right height - added supports on all
four sides - and screwed down the chicken coop brooder to the support boards.
He did this all in about 15 minutes...such a man. This would have 
taken me the best part of a day.

I will eventually paint the bench white when the treated wood cures 
and dries out. The finished painted bench will be Part 3 of the build.

This potting bench is constructed of a little bit of old and new.
When painted white I will love the contrast of the white wood
with the blue vintage sink.
Until the wood cures I just had to curate the bench for my next
Pop Up Vintage Market that is coming soon.
I loaded the bench with plants, grapevine wreath, salvage tin
and chippy architectural salvage pieces.
This piece will be for sale at my Pop Up Market.
