Every Spring and Summer, my Pinterest and Facebook news feeds are filled to the brim with big, beautiful potting benches! Whether constructed from pallets or old doors, or even a genuine vintage potting table, they are stunning and, well, LARGE. But, here’s the thing- I’m a gardener on a very small scale.

I do a lot of cooking at home but I’m not a prolific gardener. I’m limited my own lack of gardening interest, but also by space.

Garden Art with a Garden Trellis Made from Farm Tools

This project started out when I thrifted several old garden shovels for a Halloween project. Well, try as I might, the spooky project was a failure.

Once upon a time, we had a hanging bird bath that I absolutely loved. BUT, it was plastic and impossible to clean properly. Needless to say, it didn’t come with us when we moved!
