Picket Potting Bench

I build this potting bench using recycled pickets.  The back is an old window frame fitted with chicken wire.  An old enamel bowl is a perfect place to fill pots with soil.  The towel bar on the side is made from an old piece of bamboo hung on old spoons bent into hooks.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Sherri Spear
