A few years back Randy found this really cheap thing for me at Goodwill. We had no idea what it was, but he knew it was funky and possibly something I'd want. (If you know what it is, please do tell!) I figured I'd paint it up one day and use it for display at a craft fair or the flea market. It has sat in the shed and I was putting off the painting of it......
Then a light bulb went off today. I was going to cut the base off and use it for a side table. Randy had all of his saws at work with him today, so I had to compromise and use a rusted hand saw to cut the top off. It worked though.
To make the table top, I used some pieces from the bench top I found out at the shed the other day.
I cut the boards to the sizes I wanted with the chop saw. I secured them together with two scrap pieces of wood. I screwed them on, but also used Gorilla Glue for extra security.
I secured the top to the base with screws and more Gorilla Glue. I painted the base gray and distressed it. I left the top as is and just put a coat of polyurethane on it to enhance the worn wood.
As far as my 5th day of yard work, I didn't get much done today because of the rain we got. But when it slowed down, I did pick up and dump two wheelbarrows worth of sticks. So stick with me, and finish out this week getting some outside work done if you are able to.
