Now that's recycling! It looks like it started as a dresser or vanity, then the mirror got broken so some imaginative person put chicken wire in and used it outside, and now you have found yet another life for it! A great idea, too!
Okay, I'd love to have a darling potting bench...something from an antique dresser wound suite me just fine. However, even though we in California do not get that much rain, how do you protect your wood furniture from the outside elements to keep it from rotting, falling apart and such?? Do you coat with tons of sealer, varnish, or what? I have in my time, thoroughly ruined a rattan 3 drawer little dresser that I kept my gardening stuff in, a wood coffee table that I had between two chairs, even my wood birdhouses attached to my wooden fence are looking pretty shabby, and I don't mean the cute kind of shabby.
