Planting Station

I made this planting station last year.  
It has came in so handy.
I keep watering cans, hand garden tools, miracle grow, seeds,
weed sprays, and a lot more in there!

When we bought our house we had a lot of JUNK in the barns. 
And some treasures hidden in them too.
Sometimes I was the only one who saw the treasure potential though :)
I grabbed 3 things from the barn.
A cabinet.
A table.
A head board (not pictured)
I simple screwed them all together to make THIS……
I threw some red paint on it and added a little decoration to “farm fabulous” it up.
Even outdoor practical pieces should be “farm fabulous”!!!
I did screw the birdhouses onto it
because there is no way the window would allow them to stay otherwise.
And speaking of wind….
I also learned the hard way that I needed to secure the planting station to the ground.
I pounded in a T-Post in and then secured one leg 
of the planting station to the T-Post with wire
(and it worked, YAY)


  1. Your potting station is farm fresh and outdoor wonderful. Love the birdhouses and the bright red finish.

  2. This is AMAZING!!! My garden is so huge it requires it's own giant shed, but this would be perfect if it was smaller. How crafty of you! I've been itching to craft something lately, I'm just searching for the perfect product around the farm!

  3. Thank you for sharing you have been featured at One More Time...hope you will be able to join in again this week.

  4. Your planting station is amazing! I am featuring it later today at Pick of the Bunch! Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent this week. I love it!! Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I absolutely adore this! I am wanting to make myself a little planting station as well, and I'm truly inspired by your use of different pieces of furniture to make it. Oh the wheels are turning in my mind!

    I am choosing this post as my favorite for the From the Farm Blog Hop, and it will be featured across all host blogs this week. :)

    Hope to see you back at From the Farm Blog Hop this Friday!
