Beautiful Outdoor Side Table Makeover

I love to makeover furniture!

Here is a project I just finished that is just my style!

I tried my best to save this old table, it's beautiful but rickety.

I tried to glue it, screw it, nail it... no luck!


I took it apart.

And saved the beautiful top.

Then I had this old folding table...

with great legs, and I had an idea.

I easily attached the legs to the bottom of the table top using screws through the mesh.

not so pretty under here!

Then using my orbital sander I sanded the daylights out of the table top.

I gave it a coat of furniture wax for protection.

Holy cow is that wood beautiful! 

No need for any words or decorations on this baby.

Good save!

And in case you're wondering what is going
 to happen to the extra pieces...

I promise you I will think of something!

I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.
