Potting Bench Makeover

A year ago, I created a potting bench area on the lower porch of my home.

You can view last year’s potting bench here.

It looked like this:

A vintage enamel top table that I added a skirt to . . .

After a year, the skirt was looking a little sad and needed to be replaced.

Hope you have a beautiful day among the flowers you love!
