DONE IN A DAY ~Rednesday~ Planter Side Table

~ Need a new Table? ~
I found this Fabulous "Done in a Day" Project at my local Lowe's store.
Isn't it a terrific idea?
You could whip it up in an afternoon!


My daughter is moving into a new apartment in a couple of weeks.
I am going to make a new table for her new place ~
~ in any color she would like!
Here is how you can make one too.

STEP-BY-STEP:

Step 1: Sand any rough edges on the round wooden pine panel and wipe clean.
Prime the panel and allow to dry.

Step 2: Apply at least two coats of paint to the panel and the planters.  Allow to dry. 
Apply a coat of clear polyurethane to the panel and the planters.
For a glossier look, apply more coats.
Allow to dry.

Step 3: Join the planters (base to base) using Liquid Nails adhesive.
Center the panel on the upper planter...
and secure with same adhesive.

WE CAN DO THIS... RIGHT?
I know it has a $90 estimated cost but we can do it cheaper than that I am sure!

Great idea!! I may try it for a little table on my back porch. I tried to link onto the Rednesday site, but it said it wasn't there.

I love stuff like this! But yeah, we can do it for less than 90! ♥

Yes...great idea and we can do it for a way better price...look out thrift stores.
LOVE your paper cones. I remember making May Day baskets for the neighbors when I was in grade school. :) Happy memory.
Warmly,
Deb :)

I just love your header. It's so cute!
I think that great table can be done for much less! I once made a birdbath with a bunch of pots, using that basic concept. I bet your daughter will love it!
Happy REDnesday!

Hi Carrie! As I was scrolling down to catch up on each post I had such a fun laugh as I noticed the sidebar photo caption "I live in boots all winter"! Too funny! I really enjoyed your fold out paper album - Wow! Your giveaway prize was aqua wonderfulness. There are always so many ideas I file away when I come to visit! Have a great weekend ahead! E

Just a little something from Judy said...

I could use an extra table on my porch, and this might be just what I need. Once again, you have introduced me to a new creative concept. Thank you. Your daughter is fortunate to have you in her life.
