Potting bench project

Springfield, OH(Zone 5b)

So I tend to be a bit of a packrat, when i see something “cool” i glom onto it until my DH says,”no more new stuff til we get rid of some of this old stuff
Case in point, a contractor friend of his had a bunch of old school house doors that he had scavenged from various projects and when he said I could have some I jumped on it!
Then FIL brought over an old single bowl shallow cast iron sink from his garage and it was true love! I turned to DH and said, Babe make me a potting bench from the doors and that sink! Lets go get some cedar!
First I wire brushed and painted the bottom of the sink

Next painted a couple of the doors with exterior paint And prepared it for attachment to the bench

DH then made the part of the bench that will hold the sink and attach to the doors

We did disturb a little resident when we moved the pots onto the bench
