On Sunday I showed you my new porcelain topped cabinet, but did you remember that I already had a piece of porcelain topped furniture?
It started out a little rough (to say the least),
but came out looking like this.
Well, a couple weeks ago I still had not moved it out of my kitchen down to the family room where it was going to live. And I needed to pot up some flowers. So, I put one and one together and decided to move it outside temporarily to use as a potting table.
It's actually been quite useful outside and I'm sort of liking it here.
This weekend I bought yet another annual and used the table to pot her up. Once I start buying plants I have a hard time saying "enough". I will keep buying them until they stop selling them.
This one's a coleus.
The place where I bought it didn't have too much info on the tag other than "coleus", but I think it is a Kong variety, which generally have huge leaves and taller plants. They do well when they get just a little early morning or late afternoon sun, although some coleus love the sun.
This is a Pepsi crate that I bought at an estate sale for $3.00. We're a Coke family here, so I didn't feel too bad in putting the Pepsi crate outside as a gardening tool caddy.
