The ongoing fascination with the 'Potager' continues for me. I love my vegetable garden and the joy it brings to me. Especially when I am picking produce and providing for my family.
For what seems like an eternity I have had an idea. I found the most wonderful vintage cast iron hand basin in a wonderful pink. I knew the instant I saw it, what it was going to be for.
I love the idea of a potting table come wash up area within the vegetable garden - or as you are well aware by now - what I will refer to as my Potager - whether it is a true Potager or not, in my imagination it will be!
So, the hunt for the perfect table became a focus. I have hunted high and low, to no avail.
I started to think I would never find my perfect table. Too small, too big, too good, too expensive, wrong shape! Everything but the one I needed.
A few weeks ago I went to a wonderful Op shop, one which I keep forgetting about.
Down a little back street hidden away.
I had hunted around, when up in the back corner it caught my eye. 'As Is' $35..........
Perfect in every way, the right size and wonderful. I will admit though, that I am still feeling most guilty for painting the beautiful timber and sending this lovely to live outside.
But it is going to be wonderful and beautiful and so worth the wait!
This lovely little table has now had two coats of lovely Antique White and looking most positively stunning! But then again I am totally biased.
The final unveiling soon I hope.
