I love a transformation.

A transformed life, a transformed relationship, a transformed junk find. I like to think of my life as one that is always in a state of transformation. And a good thing it is....seriously, I don't think there is a minute goes by that I am not "oopsing" or "why did I say that?' or "what was I thinking?" I know I will never get it all right before I go to heaven, but I'm thankful for grace...and the desire to change.

Remember this?

My garage sale potting bench that looked good on the outside and was rotting under the paint?

I couldn't put it to the road. Just couldn't kick it to the curb. I wanted that doggone table rescued in some way, and it was nagging at me. And then, I came up with a plan.

I let JR use his sledgehammer to remove the whole top. And then he made a new top from some old redwood that was out back.


I stripped off the remaining paint.


Then, gave it a good coat of oil.

Last, we cut the legs down to eliminate the rot at the bottoms, and added caster wheels.

And a new handle made from leftover legs and pipe.

I love my new serving table!


  1. It is a very pretty potting bench, I am amazed by all of JR's handiwork!

  2. I'll bet that estate sale lady would be jealous if she saw it now!

  3. It looks amazing!

  4. It looks amazing! I need you and JR to visit us to help with just a "few" things :) ha!

  5. wonderfully made indeed! Way to reuse reduce recycle!

  6. I was definitely admiring this table last time I was at your house. So jealous of both of your abilities to make things!

  8. insulating layer during cold weather, or it can be worn by itself on [url=]cheap northface jackets[/url] Even though the company has gradually expanded its manufacturer product [url=]north face denali clearance[/url] capacity to deal with cold. Some are there to cater the extreme colds
