Finally fixed a project fail!! New table is done!
Please excuse the background. The oak tree and I are fighing with the gifts it "leaves" me and I'm losing.
I made this table a couple of years ago after seeing a table made with plumbing supplies and it's ridiculous price tag!! Though these supplies ran me a bit over 100, it was still way less than the one I saw.
My first attempt was quite ugly and I chalked it up as a craft fail and stuck it on the back porch, but I decided I would have a take two and make it work (said like Tim Gunn)!!
I went to home depot and bought the Rustoleaum hammered copper spray paint. I repainted the table base. I have to say I love this color and was really happy with the results.
Here is where my hubby came in. We don't have a table saw and hand cutting from a 15.00 sheet of plywood is not something I should do. He also made the bottom frame portion. Though I am a huge miter saw fan, I was off putting coats of sealer on my pallet table, so I was fine with that. :)
I used the new Varathane aging produce that I was sooo lucky to receive as a sample for the top and the sides.
This stuff was SOO awesome. I am not going to lie, as soon as I saw it work, I used it on a tray, as well as a small box I had...then I am on the search for anything else that I can use this on!! Watching the process is so cool and it looks fantastic!!
I am a huge fan and plan on making all sorts of things with this. I highly recommend getting some. I put a pic up that shows half done and half not. Super fun!!
I then sealed it to survive the texas summer and now I have a great table for my back patio!!
Thanks for reading and happy creating!!
