One afternoon and $0 spent!
I had wanted a potting table for my front porch, and finally got it done one afternoon while my son was napping! I wanted a table that was functional but pretty enough to be front and center.
My table is a combination of Ana's and the one I found on 2 Crafty 4 My Skirt (http://2crafty4myskirt.blogspot.com/2012/04/mothers-day-potting-table.h…). I combined and modified the plans so that I could use scraps (could easily be built with pallet wood, too), so my dimension are a little weird, I know. My table is 39 1/2" from bottom to top (the top shelf sits at 36") x 44" wide. It's on the tall side, but it works well for our space.
