Looking for good junkin' in Austin & my space at Vintage Market

I found this old potting bench, broken apart, and brought it home.  After rebuilding it, powerwashing it, sanding it, painting it, and re-sanding here it is.  I sewed a burlap skirt, complete with stay-stitching, and applied it with upholstery tacks.  I sorta like the hooks to open it.  It is, of course, for sale at Vintage Market.  I think it would make a great work station or even a kitchen island. 

Also, I am going to Austin, Texas soon and will be perusing shops for wares and good finds.  Do any of you have any recommendations for junking or anything else?


  1. Hi Annie, Your potting bench looks great. You did a great job on it....Julian

  2. Hi Dianne,

    It was nice chatting with you last night at Vintage Market.
    What a great detailing of your recent trip!
    I hope you don't mind, I mentioned you on my blog.
    I'll tell Rita I saw you last night.
