Selectively salvaged wood potting bench - Julie Turk-Franzen

 Selectively salvaged reclaimed wood potting bench - Julie Turk-Franzen

This selectively salvaged wood potting bench is gorgeous! BUT... it also has deep meaning attached.


When family member Aunt Rita passed on, Julie's husband Mark built the potting bench from parts of Rita's homestead. What a wonderful memento!

This junk styled potter's bench is pure eye candy for a junker! Take your time scanning the photos. Did you notice the tap wind chime? And remember those old style tea towel hangers Grandma use to have in her kitchen?

The window is a cool idea. This would allow your potting bench to even face the garden without obstructing any view. Neat! Also loving how the bench is stylin' in all different colours.

Those gorgeous as is rusty brackets indeed showcase anything you'd place on that lower shelf! What a cool eye grab.

Here's a planter that was also created from the same materials. Don't you love the little picket fence addition?

Why I LOVE this:

The potting bench is eclectically cool on all fronts. But the fact that every salvaged old relic has special meaning takes this one to new junk heights. The potting bench is truly the perfect build. Wouldn't a kitchen island or workbench also be cool ideas? Oh yes!!
