I am dreaming of a potting bench

I am bound and determined to find a piece of furniture to make a potting bench out of.  No luck yet.  For now I am decorating my table by the basement door with a garden theme.  I would use this outside but I am looking for something a little heavier.  I had to take pictures with the flash on the camera since the basement is a little dark in this area.  Please excuse the ugly light switch.




I added what I call my garden angel to the table.  It was a favorite of my mother's.  She used to have it hanging on the knob of her hutch door.


Here are some pictures without the flash.  They show more of the true color of the walls which is a golden yellow but it is harder to see some of the items.  In the above pictures the walls look more beige.




Now for an update on the baby birds.  I was able to get a quick picture the other day.  I think that there might be three babies.  I can make out two beaks but I think that there is one underneath.

  2. Even though it's not a potting bench table, your garden themed table looks the part! Of course I love those little baby birdies!

    1. They are getting bigger every day. I checked on them this morning and one of them looked right at me. He wouldn't take his eyes off of me.
