Salvaged Wood & Pallet Potting Benches

A potting bench or potting station is the perfect spring project for your garden, porch, or garden shed, and right now is the perfect time to start planning and collecting the wood 
and other materials you will need to create your very own potting bench creation! 

You can use all different types of  salvaged and reclaimed materials to create a potting 
bench. Old doors, wood shipping pallets, salvaged wood, sections of fencing, and even old sinks and dressers can be incorporated into a potting bench! Your only limit is your own imagination!  Check out these wonderful potting benches and maybe you'll be inspired to plan and make your own!
