  2. great project! well done… Thanks for sharing..

  3. Christine King says:

    Really clever Shayna, and you have a handy husband! Yep, I need a shed!

  4. This is an amazing idea! I have a pottin bench in our garage/shop but I am always afraid to use it because I don’t want a bunch of dirt in our nice clean shop. Maybe I can convince my husband that we need something like this attached to the back of our house 🙂 [ yeah right – but a girl can try! ]

    Simply adorable! I love your fall arangements, too!

    Nicely done.

  8. That is a great idea and a space saver too. You’ll did a beautiful job and an easy to follow tutorial. Love your Fall display too. Wanted to copy, but need some tree trunk cuts for risers. Love the look.

    When the top boards were fitted to the frame, they are being laid flush to the edge of the frame. In a later photograph, the top boards are inset so that the surface is flush with the frame. How was that achieved please?

    Great potting table idea & thank you for sharing

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed the project! To inset the boards, once the top boards were nailed in place, we trimmed out the edges with the same material. That left us with a flush top. I hope that helps!
