So the little wifie was in need of a bench to help her with all the plants. We had a long bench that had been used in the garage, but when we re-did the laundry room and the workshop, we had pulled this bench out.

I cut the bench to the length she needed and sanded most of the old paint off but left some to give a rough, distressed effect. I then coated it with about 4 coats of exterior polyurethane.

The original Bench -

Cut into two benches…. and darn if she hasn’t laid claim to the second bench as well!

Ready for use!

Good for Pam! I would do the same (and you know you love her for it) Those tables will be handy for potting up orchids outdoors and for displaying pots too. You are such a ‘keeper’, Harold. :)

Plus “good looking” Iris, don’t forget that!!!

Pam already has pot all over it, There’s hardly enough room for me to place a beer on the table.

I love that you kept some of the paint on it before sealing it – nice effect.

heeheeeheeee…maybe you can install a cup holder on the side of the table for your beer, that way Pam won’t lose any table space :)

P.S. love the tables!
