Potting Bench Perfection

A few days ago, I showed you a lattice screen that Mr. Comforts of Home was building to hide the air conditioner and such.   Well it is finished!

Here is the BEFORE (actually during) picture.


And here it is finished!  As soon as the honeysuckle vine grows a little it will be a wonderful screen!


Do you see the potting bench?  Want a closer peak?

I have been wanting a potting bench for quite a while and when the folks at Cymax Stores asked me if I would like to do a review in exchange for a product, I knew just which one I would pick.

I have seen pricey potting benches sold at other stores that looked very similar to this one.  It arrived very fast and Mr. Comforts of Home had it put together in a jiffy. 

I am very pleased with it.  It is sturdy, has hooks, shelves and a slotted area on top for dirt to fall into as you pot.  I couldn't ask for more.  If you want to find out more about it you can click here, EveryPatioFurniture.

Welcome Home,

  1. Mr. Comforts of Home has been busy and doing a great job. I like the lattice screen and it won't take very long for the honeysuckle to grow. I also see that he's been leveling the cute little potting bench.

  6. The lattice fence is going to be so pretty with the honeysuckle! Your potting bench is in the perfect spot as you can store pots behind the fencing as well. I've always wanted one...my back doesn't like it when I bend over a lot! ;-D

    I sent you an email!

    XO,

  7. Love the potting bench! I had a similar one I bought at a consignment store that ended up in my kitchen. But you probably already know that! What a wonderful choice! And I love the lattice! Our new air conditioner looks huge, but there's not enough room where it is to do what you've done.

  12. Penny, that lattice is a fabulous idea! I want Greg to put one in front of our propane tank up at the cabin. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the future w/the honey suckle on it. I envy your potting bench too!

  13. Penny, I love your lattice and the potting bench. I have always wanted one, too. I don't know why really. I don't do that much planting where I need one, but they do look nice. Thanks for joining my party.

  15. Penny, it looks great and how nice to have a new potting bench. Once the honey suckle is blooming it will smell so fragrant. Just watch out for the bees. LOL
