Finally, a place to corral all of the stuff on the patio!
What we really needed was a wood rack and buffet/usable surface for the patio, but this potting bench fit the bill perfectly because:
1. It's sturdy enough to hold all that firewood
2. I had all of the supplies already (2x4 scraps, leftover paint, screws, etc)
Free and easy? Yes, please!
Only real change is that I added an apron to the front of the top shelf, and used well-sanded fence slats for the top shelf instead of a regular 1x6 (it's what was in the garage already).
The towel bar is from Ikea. That was also an extra that was already on hand.
