When I was asked to create some garden themed stencils, one of the first ideas that popped into my mind was something to do with a potting bench.


A potting bench was something that would entice you outdoors, keeping you creating, through the beauty of flowers and plants.


Plus, I wanted a bench! Hey… maybe I’d even garden.


But nothing ever materialized.


Until the crate broke in front of the shed… YES!


So a ‘rustic shed reveal with sawhorse potting bench and old rake sign for garden tools’ transpired!

Potting SHED seemed to hold more promise than just a bench… an entire shed for the whole experience?! I’m certainly game!


Now, if you know my style at all, you know I love productive junk.


So let’s make a Potting Shed sign, with a fun twist! This one will utilize an old rake to hang garden tools.

a) Two boards were fit together, to accommodate the Potting Shed stencil size.

b) Fusion’s Casement (white) was coated in the main areas of the boards where the stencil would be placed, for higher visibility.

c) Decide on placement of rake and graphics.


Note: Tours until Dusk was positioned to be inside the rake.

d) Using Fusion’s Chocolate, stencil Tours Until Dusk first, then move up Potting Shed, to miss most of the rake.

e) Using just the flowers from the Potting Shed stencil, apply them along the bottom of the sign, just short of the rake sides.

Tip: Every time the flowers were stencilled, I flipped the stencil around, and positioned the stencil higher or lower than the last, so the flowers would appear more random.

f) Using a palm sander, lightly hit the sign in random places for a naturally weathered appearance.

g) And add rusty junk jewelry for good measure! Ok… and to hold the boards together. I just love the character it adds.


And here’s the rest of the shed!

As I was planting away, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take a few shots with it really being used. This is not a staged shoot!

Isn’t it even pretty in all its messy glory?

After everything was potted up, I simply hosed off the top, and it was a done deal. It really works!

Some galvanized goods were stacked for storage underneath the bench, and as garden fillers. It really is a potting bench in action, plus a garden feature!

You may have noticed some boards missing from the top of the potting bench, compared to the

first draft.

The option for a shelf or table size is awesome!

The shelf allows the sun and rain to hit the plants below. And when more working space is required, 3 more planks plunked on top will do the trick.


I honestly found the shelf size to be perfect for working.

Recognize that oil funnel from my branch ladder flower stand?


I replaced the wire vine with a new one. Love it!
