(Before It's News)
I have a quick and easy DIY for you today. I’ve been wanting to organize my backyard potting area for the longest time. Inspiration struck when I saw this super easy cinder block and wood plank table on Freunde Von Freunden
. So pretty and simple. In fact, it was such an easy DIY that my son built it for me in a few hours.
I added the vintage hooks which used to be in our bathroom. It makes the perfect herb drying rack.
If I’m not drying herbs, I can hang gardening tools from the hooks. Perfect!
I use the top for a mini herb garden and plant cutting area. Currently, this tiny jade plant is starting root.
I also have a pretty red geranium that’s just starting to flower.
On the other side of the patio is my vegetable garden and I’m excited about this Japanese Eggplant. My Wee Pumpkins aren’t doing as well and my plan to have a harvest of tiny pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving may fall short.
Oh well, in the meantime, I’m enjoying this very simple potting table. What’s great about it is it’s weather proof and easy to clean since we left an opening between the wood planks. Did you catch the Faux Enamelware Compost Bin
on the ground? I made that from an old bucket and it’s handy to throw clippings in it. You can see how I made it HERE
. I’m also excited about that slice of tree trunk that I have drying. One of trees died and I saved two big pieces.
Even though my Potting Table won’t win any design awards, it’s functional, practical and was made with love by my son. That’s the best type of DIY.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
