Simple Outdoor Table


I saw this on Pinterest.  It looked super simple (it was) and I did have another extra plastic 1/2 barrel planter.  So . . . .

I couldn’t find the wood circle I wanted at Home Depot but I did have a couple of these old 3 legged tables I haven’t used since I moved.

I found this huge piece of cardstock/posterboard at Hobby Lobby for $3.

I flipped the poster board over, traced my old table top and cut the circle out.

Then I Mod Podge’d the posterboard to the top of the old table top. (You could mod podge anything to the top or even just paint it) The original tutorial didn’t do anything to the round, they just covered it with wine corks or you could use marbles?

I bought these “bumpers” at Hobby Lobby along with this heavy beveled 24″ glass round that was clearance for $13.50.

I had another 1/2 cinder block that I put inside the barrel to weigh it down (you could use a bag of sand).  I inserted the wood top into the barrel.  Then attached the “bumpers” to the lip of the plastic barrel and put the glass top on.

Voila!!  Simple and functional!  Here is the original link – the wine corks look super cute too:
