We love being in our backyard.
I use it like an extra room in our house, nearly year round. It’s like a giant playroom.
Only it has more ants.
I bought our patio table and chairs at WalMart several years ago when they marked down the leftovers. I got a fantastic deal on the set (75%) off, even though a glass table wasn’t my preference, it has served us well.
Unfortunately, the metal edging has rusted. Our budget mocked me when I hinted at a new table.
I asked my hubby if we could just replace the glass with wood. He had an even easier/better/cheaper idea!
He built a wooden table top to put over the glass!
It was pretty easy and only cost $50!
He even cut a hole for my clearance umbrella!
I like the way it looked unfinished, but knew the weather wouldn’t be kind to it.
I used the leftover black enamel paint from this project and this one! (I really got my money’s worth on those two gallons!)
The table is actually bigger and better than I expected it to be!
Now, I’m ready for a garden party! Check out Thrifty Decor Chick to see more!
