I'm A Potter Head....

No, no don't get the wrong idea folks.  I'm not smoking pot in my spare time nor have I ever. And yes I do like Harry Potter books and movies but not enough to qualify as a of yet anywho ;)

My backyard last May (and yup that's my Baylee peeking thru the flowers lol)

I'm talking about potting plants. Its something I do every spring and I have a bajillion pots I make up for my front porch and back patio areas.  Nothing makes me happier than to see beautiful plants and blooms out every window.  That's what I miss most during the winter is all the color...I love the bright colors of red, greens, yellows, pinks and purples outside (along with the sun/heat of course)!

And I've wanted a potting bench forever y'all!
I love the ones in the catalogs but I'm not forking over big $$ for something I will
cover with dirt KWIM?

So I'm stalking my Habitat ReStore for a cool dresser I can paint a sunny color and use instead.
These pictures have inspired me and I don't think it would be too hard right?  A little help from the hubs with the pegboard area but the rest I can handle.

This is a cool one the fun color and all the storage!  I want to spend under $100 total if I can and not sure I can get a whole hutch for that price at the ReStore.

Love how they took out the drawers in this dresser for open storage and the picket fence for hanging!

This one is lovely too but I don't want to do that much building.  It was made with old doors and shutters which is a cool idea.  I couldn't find the original source for the tutorial if there was one though.

And I love the idea of using it for a drink center...after a good cleaning of course ;)
Great for parties!

And this one was too cute to not post...I love the additon of the Radio Flyer wagon.
And red & white are such fun colors for outside too!

Are you a Potter Head too??



  1. I love the yellow limey looking one. I hadnt had any real interest in gardening for a couple years n tore out beds last year cause i couldnt keep up with weeds. However your article on fairy gardening revived my interest. I took a class on it and have ething ready to go and just waiting on weather to cooperate. Turns out this year its still so popular that gardening centers have plants specifically for fairy gardeners.

  2. Awesome. I love them all. The little drink centers are fabulous. I would love to have one of those under our gazebo down by the pond. Great ideas, Suzanne.

  3. I think my favourite is the second one ... partly because those colourful gumboots are way too cool! Hope you can find something you like!


Thanks so much for visiting me, I hope I made you smile or inspired you in some way! I appreciate you stopping by!
