A weathered table finds new purpose as a chic potting bench on this small porch. A few simple coat hooks installed around the edges hold handy garden tools, and a pair of crates adds extra storage to the tabletop. This quaint station contributes to the rustic style of the space and showcases a bit of summer’s natural color.
