During the Summer I love to have an abundance of potted flowers, it just makes me happy! Years ago my hubby had built a workbench which we eventually converted into my gardening bench. With years of weathering the top and bottom collapsed, so he added planks of exterior-grade lumber. This way the water can drip down and into the grass instead of resting on top and eventually caving in again.
I stained the new wood with a dark ebony and gave the existing wood a fresh coat of paint.
I had debated staining the whole bench but I am really enjoying having it two toned.
You can see how I aged the Terra Cotta Pots here.
