Potting table my husband made. He builds them and I design them. My niece is in the pic for fun!
We use old windows we pick up whenever we see them for a good deal.
We used an old fork for the handle on the cabinet. Just just screw on and bend!
Here is a potting table we made for our friends who have a farm. They had a Fall Round-Up party and used it as a little outdoor pantry. It looked great!

My husband started making birdhouses for our kids school auction. Then it turned into potting tables. As he made them, each one was cooler than the next. We donate them to our kids schools and charities and have made some for friends and family. They are made with old fence or barn boards, old windows, some old or new hooks, and a big enamelware bowl for the dirt. My husband gets most all the credit for these, I just give my advice on hook placement, which window and bowl to use. I am thankful for a handy husband! These can also be used for intertaining indoors and out. We know someone who made a wine bar.
