Great for your potting needs and more!
Barbara from Louisiana
If you bought this for its' intended use, it's really a great product. Whether potting plants or as a station for outdoor picnics and supplies, it's a handy piece for your porch or patio. Nicely stained and just waiting for me to put a coat of a water sealer. The 4 star rating is because of the instructions and the folding brackets. It took a second try on the first steps to get the bottom tray and legs together in the right order. If you don't notice the tiny pre-drilled holes you can easily put the legs and tray the wrong way. That's why I never tighten anything completely until I have too. Leg stickers with left and right and tray stickers with front and back would have been most helpful. And remember leg bolts will be loose during setup because it is a folding table. They can be tightened and adjusted as needed during setup. After that was figured out the rest went together quickly. The folding brackets are a little light so make sure you bend them up before lifting the table to fold or they will bow out and bend. Wayfair gave me free 2 day shipping and I got a nice first purchase discount which made it a very sweet deal. Kudos!
Just-Right for Gardeners

The bench is well designed and is sturdier than it appears. I hung small tools from the trellis back, stacked pots on the upper level and stored potting soil inside bin on bottom shelf. Looks great in my backyard. The fact that it folds for winter storage is a plus. I gave the wood three coats of Thompson's clear preservative, just to add to its longevity. Assembly instructions not very good, so I had to go through a bit if trial and error. Unlike furniture other pieces from Wayfair. Price is very attractive.
Love My Potting Bench
Beverly from PHILADELPHIA, PA
I am very satisfied with my new Potting Bench. It is sturdy and looks like I paid more for it than I did. It is a great value. I cannot say I disliked anything about my bench. It fits perfectly on my balcony and I can't wait for my flowers to arrive. I will recommend my new bench to family and friends. Thanks again.

I LOVE this potting bench. I actually spray painted it a sage green ( looks stained) and it looks great in my space. Unfortunately, the cross bar on top came split. Basically, it's useless. Also, many ares of the bench are splitting by the screws. I'm not sure if my husband tightened them too much, or it's just low- quality. Nonetheless,, it is functional and CUTE. I've already given myself permission to order another one if this one breaks down!
wood potting bench
karen from Clovis, CA – Verified Buyer
I am so happy with this potting bench! It took me about an hour or a little more to put together and then another day to paint it with a protective seal. I was afraid it wouldn't be strong enough to hold the heavy pots I wanted to store on the bottom, but so far so good. I am impressed with how much can be stored on and under it and still have a clear surface for potting and I love the hooks for the lattice for hanging items.

I bought this piece to use as a buffet on my patio and I love it! I am going to re-stain it because the manufacturer's finish didn't weather well over the winter. I wanted to change the color anyway. Next winter, I will fold it up and store it to prevent this.
Great quality, but a little wobbly
debz from Hillsborough, NJ
I ordered this potting bench to use on my deck as a serving/prep table. I really love how it looks and the quality of the wood is great. It was really easy to put together and the fact that it folds up is perfect for storage. The only problem that I have with the bench is that the hinges are a bit flimsy, and this makes the bench wobbly. I have mine up against the railing of the deck so it's somewhat more stable, but if it was not up against something, I think it might be too unstable. So if you're going to use this bench in a place where it's going to stand alone, you might want to reconsider. Perhaps if the hinges were actually pieces of wood that could be hooked when the bench is open and unhooked for folding, it would be perfect. If you're handy this could be easily done, and is probably what I'll end up doing. For the price you can't beat the quality, except for the hinges.
Nice Potting Bench
Lynda from PA – Verified Buyer
This folding potting bench is exactly what I needed. It is a generous size, not too heavy to move, and will double as a serving area when we have outdoor parties. The only problem is that the assembly instructions that come with it are quite confusing and it was very frustrating to get this together properly.
