Party Junk 186 – potting benches!
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to think about gardening and beautifying our backyards, and with that comes cool potting benches!
I’ve always wanted one! And have a few ideas on how to make an easy one. But I adore inspiring ideas that can kick a boring potting bench up a notch. Here are a few that caught my eye and would be so easy to make with up-cycled components…
Table styled potting bench – Songbird
A cut down table with a slotted top combined with a few pallet boards created the perfect little potting bench with aged goodness! Love the simplicity and clean lines!
old sink potting bench – Our Fairfield Home and Garden
Why stick with a traditional potting bench when you can add additional old style charm with an old sink instead? I’m crazy about this idea!
Pallet potting bench – Rustic ReDiscovered
The good ‘ol pallet makes an appearance in this dressed up two toned design. I love the woodsy top teamed with the paint. Super awesome tutorial on the build!
Fence styled potting bench – Homeroad
There are TONS of hidden nooks and crannies in this potting bench design, utilizing a fence, old window, slate tiles, drawer… you name it, this has it! And it’s gorgeous too!
old table and door potting bench – Circa 1929
Chiming in with a true blue junk theme, old components are married up to create one cool looking potting bench! It just couldn’t be more simple to create!
Here’s a fab potting bench clipboard that was curated from Hometalk!

so many great ideas for potting benches…especially like the use of the old aprons to cover up the mess under the sink…thinking this might be a summer project – thanks Donna for sponsoring such a great theme!
Isn’t that one sweet? I’d love a vintage sink!
Hey Donna — Happy Mother’s Day Weekend! I, too, have a soft spot for potting benches. If only I could keep plants alive. 🙂
Thanks for hosting and have a fabulous weekend!
“High five” from one brown thumb to another… ha!
I will miss the sewing category. I’ve looked forward to your parties every Friday for a year or two. Just won’t be the same.
Hey Sandy, it’s still there for now. I’ve had so many complaints about trouble loading the party, but I don’t think removing a category will fix the issue at this point. Now I only wish I knew what the issue was. 🙂
Oh, I wish I had known what your theme was going to be, because I have a really cool one with a galvanized top that I’m going to have to sell at The Farm Chicks show since I don’t have any room for it and don’t want it to have to sit outside and deteriorate. I’ve been wanting to take some photos pf it all decked out before I sell it…..now to only find the time…hahaha!
Well at least I got my lilacs linked up. Have a wonderful weekend!
I would have love to have seen it, Kathleen! I’ll debate on getting a list going of the themes a month ahead again… thanks for the reminder!
Hi Donna, so looking forward to your trip and then your posts afterwards, to Lucketts. Thanks for hosting, now I really want a potting bench.
I am needing a potting bench. You’ve got my wheels spinning. . . I think I have a plan! Thanks for the party! Life to the full! Melissa
Thanks Donna for hosting. I’ve been away from blogging for a couple of months, but I’m excited about my latest project and I love linking up with your party because so many people come to visit and it no longer feels like I’m talking to myself when I write my blog 🙂
