Door repurposed into a potting bench

This is another project from my friend Rose. Rose always finds the neatest stuff! I saw a door like this recently, but I was unable to fit it in my SUV.


I really love what Rose did with this door. It is such a simple idea, but she turned it into such a practical piece. Please leave Rose some nice comments below! I know it would really make her smile! :)
Thanks!
EDITED TO ADD:
I inadvertently did not publish the finished photos of Rose’s project. I’m very sorry Rose, that I forgot that you spent much more time on this project. I liked it the way it was, but after you finished it…. it is FABULOUS!
Okay… now ya’ll gotta leave Rose some love!
