    Chain link garden gate + an old desk = the perfect potting bench

    An unfinished farm table and a chain-link gate team up to create a custom potting bench. Shopgirl Leslie Segrete builds a handy potting bench. 1. Assemble the table. Prime and then paint it and the galvanized gate. 2. Match the center of the gate to the tabletop; mark the center of each gate post 1 1/2 inches from the table’s back edge. Using a 1 3/8-inch Forstner bit, drill holes the depth of the bit. Place posts in holes. 3. Attach four evenly spaced 1 1/4-inch pipe clamps to the gate’s bottom bar; screw clamps to the tabletop. On the gate front, hammer large staples around the chain link and into the tabletop. 4. Hang tools from the gate using wire or S-hooks.

DIY Potting Bench. I would have to make it a little bit bigger and put a sink in it so when I pot plants all the soil goes down through the hole and into a bucket. *This would be an idea for using an old privacy fence we plan to take down.
