The center patio was surrounded by grass and flower beds, the perfect place to sit under the market umbrella and read a book. At the end of the day the sun moved to the back of the yard and it was there that I could sit and enjoy the garden a little longer. It was the perfect spot share a glass of wine with my neighbours.
The potting bench in natural wood was the beginning stages of the garden display at the back of the yard. Later I painted the bench, a few wooden pop up tables and a mirror black to give a more refined look to the garden. The little wooden bench has moved with me from house to house and I still have it today.
The bench was originally a wood workers bench for kids sold at Home Depot (10 years ago). It was a great score at only $25.
