“OMG, this is amazing! I have an empty flower pot and I am stealing this idea!” said a reader

I wanted a small table to go between the lounge chairs I up cycled.
I had a 20″ terra cotta pot that I painted yellow. I purchased a bag of sand and a 24″ glass top. I already had a bag shells.

A terra cotta pot is very heavy. I wanted to be able to move it around without hurting myself…so I gathered pieces of Styrofoam and cardboard to fill the pot 2/3 up from top, this would keep the pot from being too heavy.

I cut a circle from cardboard that fit pretty good on top.

If you don’t have any shells, you can purchase a bag for under $10 at Walmart. Check out more of my unique creations at: kelleysdiy.com thank you for looking
