I Want One!

I have wanted a Hoosier cabinet for as long as I can remember. I wanted one for my kitchen but it's just too small. I wanted one for the deck but couldn't find one cheap enough to have outside. I wanted one for a potting area under the deck. I found one that was perfect! Cheap and not really quality enough to restore. The lady refused to sell it to me because it would be outside!

Yesterday I went back to a sale for something I decided I wanted. Of course, it was gone. I spotted this Hoosier top and everything was half price. For 30 bucks it had to come home with me! Yes, it even has the flour sifter!

I'm thinking I will keep peat moss in it.

I scraped off bad contact paper and scrubbed it up a little. It is only a gardening station, after all.


I finally have a Hoosier! It works perfectly over the vintage enamel top table I got for 10 dollars at an auction. I love it!

What a great potting bench!

I have always wanted a Hoosier, too. But, like you, I have no room for one. I think your idea to use it outside is genius!

My congratulations on your new cabinet, how perfect this is for your gardening station, it looks so nice and organized and efficient!

I love it too!!! I've always wanted one but don't have the space either. Love what you've done with yours. :)

I love it Jean. Way to go there. Looks like a perfect blend to the table you have there to work from. Hope you are having a good day.
