New Potting Bench from Salvaged Wood

My husband surprised me yesterday by building another potting bench for my booth. The door was from the barn we salvaged as well as some of the wood. The rest of the wood came from a free pile outside of someones home. I dry brushed paint on it today to help all the wood have a bit of the same look.

While I was taking the pictures a monarch butterfly landed on my butterfly bush to pose for the picture!
