this is something I've been planning on since my last trip to PA in 2011 ... didn't have room to bring the table home then, but had room this time! this is the enamel/metal table top that was in my grandmother's kitchen .... all I really wanted was the tabletop but I did bring all the components home with me because you just never know when you'll need a table leg or two or other pieces of pretty wood. The enamelware pot was bought at Shupp's Grove (PA), bought 5 different pieces as I wasn't sure of the size I wanted my potting soil container to be, but I think this one with a lid from another purchase will work perfectly ... can't you picture it? will post new pics once i have this project completed ...

UPDATE: Saw a "hoosier" table online and now I am NOT going to use my grandmother's tabletop for a potting bench. Since I have all the components of the old table, the plan now is to refurbish it back to its glory and have it sitting in my kitchen or back porch ... Potting bench will still be happening but is probably on hold until a later date (perhaps when we complete our move to SC we'll get that done) :)
