Create a Potting Shed Sanctuary

Create a Potting Shed
Potting Shed

Does your idea of the ultimate sanctuary involve a colossal Venetian mirror, French love seat and mile long lighted shelves for shoes? How about a soaker tub under a chandelier beside a walk-in steam shower?
I would take these of course but an intimate space created from recycled and reclaimed wood and windows with a vintage potting table is my idea of heaven!


My dream potting shed is actually a greenhouse with potting bench and lots of room for all my garden tools, pots and a plethora of plants and flowers.


Since that is but a fantasy, I need to start smaller. A potting bench would define an area of my garage, mudroom or tool shed and show the world a serious green thumb works here, or in my case a wanna be gardener.

Potting Benches

If you are handy there are many DIY plans for building your own potting bench:

What would really be amazing is a potting bench with a sink!


If you aren’t handy or don’t have a source for water, we have a Vintage Potting Table equally at home in a potting shed or used as a home bar for summer entertaining. If you have the room our French Pigeon Hole Hutch would make the ultimate vintage gardening center. Our ample piece will have room for all your gardening essentials. This stunning piece is finely crafted from reclaimed wood and closely resembles a 19th century factory cupboard.

Back Yard Retreat

Love the idea of a lean to?

More flexible than shed or greenhouse in a yard short on space. Great for entertaining too… put the tools away and use sink as ice bucket.
