Makeover Monday - Potting Bench

This used to be my grandson's baby changing table. It was made for him by my late uncle.
It sat on my back patio for years, getting terribly weathered. This week I painted it white (is there any other colour?) A friend of mine made a sheet metal top that fits on top just perfectly.


My sister made curtains out of outdoor fabric to hide the clutter underneath.


I covered the shelves with peel 'n stick tiles so they will be easy to wipe off.
Now that I have my very own potting bench, will my gardening ability improve any? I hope so.
I am linking up with Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

This sure does look allot better. You should have posted before pictures so people could see what an amazing job you did. I did not know the history of this bench. Way to recycle.

That is a wonderful idea repurposing the changing table to a potting bench. It turned out fabulous!
Thanks for visiting.
