An old screen door with a broken screen makes a great potting bench or hall tree with a few additions!
I started by making a rectangle or table apron with some scrap boards (an old door jam). I made the front apron piece the width of the door. I "tucked" the back apron piece between the two side pieces (i.e., the front board is longer than the back board).
I added front legs made from 2"x 4" 's.
I attached a board near the bottom of the door (10" up from the bottom) and one 10" up on the legs. Note--the table part is upside down or reversed in this picture.
I then attached the table part to the door by screwing through the back board on the rectangle. I used pallet boards for the bottom shelf.
I also used pallet boards for the top of the table or bench. I made a little shelf to go across the top of the door.
I added some hooks on the door and one on the front leg. I also included a bottle opener because a cold drink is always appreciated after playing in the dirt. I kept the wood natural and finished it with a clear coat.
I would hang a flowering potted plant in the window opening part. I only got pictures of the potting bench in the front display of The Antique Barn where I sell. You can see some of the other things I have added to the display. The vintage suitcase painted with BLOOM would be super cute on a front porch. You can also see this great, green, vintage folding table I bought at the thrift store and the kids toy bench (that never had a lid) that I transformed into a planter.
