Recently, one of our "friends of the farm" blog followers sent us this picture. It is a desk that she repurposed into an outside planter and potting bench. Isn't it awesome? She did a great job. She took an old desk otherwise destined for the junk pile and painted it a wonderful pop of blue. Then she added the Dutch flower designs to the drawers and used the top two for flowers. On the back she added a pallet (aren't those things so wonderful and versatile?) and painted it the same color. Then voila, a flat surface to use for potting and a place to hand tools.
I asked her if I could post it and she was more than happy to share. I'm sure she'll read the comments here so let her know how awesome a job she did. It certainly inspires us and makes us realize that even an old desk can have a wonderful new life as something else entirely (and I like the blue!).
