What Can I Say......

I have the sweetest hubby. He has been so busy working his butt off the past few days on my stack of pallets. He built me this awesome primitive potting bench. I just love it.

Its 6' tall x 3' wide.

 I love the aged look of the potting bench. I think he did a damn good job of building it since he just went by the picture I found and what I told him what I wanted. He even made me a couple of boxes and a tray so far.


4 section box
2 section box
All 3 together
Even Pandora gave her seal of approval on the tray.  Hubby told me that he still had some more things he wanted to make for me since we still have a nice pile of pallet wood left. 

Now comes the fun part. I get to decorate the potting bench. When I get it decorated I'll make sure to post some pictures.

Hi Patti, I'm a new follower...found you through Lois over at the Huckleberry Lady. The items your husband made with the pallets are amazing! We used to own an orchard and had a bunch of pallets, wish I would have thought of it then. Even though we still own the orchard, it's in Maine and we just relocated to Florida! Stop by and visit, I just started blogging this year and really enjoying it....take care :)

Patti, your hubby is talented for sure. Wish my hubby would make some things for me. I have a large pile of old barn wood sitting and would love to make something with them. I could do it myself, but I am afraid of the saws. I need my fingers for typing on my blog. Great job, can't wait to see it all decorated.
