Playing, Planting, and Repurposing

Over at Remodelando la Casa, Cristina explains that after years of fun, the playscape in their backyard was a little worse for the wear.  It was time to take down the weatherbeaten wood structure, but Cristina had something in mind for the leftover wood.


Cristina reimagined what had been a swing set into a backyard potting bench!  After dismantling the playscape, there was plenty of wood for making a convenient spot to work on gardening tasks.  Her super-size potting bench has shelves and storage space above and below the countertop.  What a happy place to spend time in the garden!


Visit Remodelando la Casa to get all the details on how this potting bench was constructed with leftover wood.
