Potting Table Herb GardenI 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!

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.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
