Take a look at this amazing potting table. It’s a creation from Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. The inspiration for this table came from a Pottery Barn table she’d fallen in love with. The only problem was that it cost $1299. Seriously, who has $1300 to spend on a potting table?! So she decided to build one herself. And guess what? She’d never built anything before…..so first timers, have no fear. She built her table from cedar, which is going to age nicely and eventually get a beautiful weathered look. My favorite part of this table are the details. She really took care to plan each one, from the steel swivel casters to the dragonfly hooks. Look how pretty those hook are…

Not so sure Pottery Barn can compete with that. And the final cost? About 20% of the retail version for a total of about $260. That, I can wrap my head around. Susan put together a wonderfully detailed tutorial that is covered in two separate posts. Follow the links below to learn how you too can be the master of your own circular saw and create one of these beautiful potting tables…
