Trash to Treasure Patio Tables

 

Cheap easy tables
1. I needed three tables. You can buy these Black mesh trash cans at Walmart
or any office stores. They sell 3 packs on line for $21.00 I think.
2. Home depot sells thick wood pre-cut rounds in different sizes. Mine were
$5.00 each.
3. I purchased exterior paint and primer in one from Home depots. They mixed
the color to match the furniture cushions.
4. I painted 3 coats of Aqua paint on the wood. Allowing each coat to dry for a
day.
5. Lastly I painted an exterior sealer to protect the wood.
6. I sprayed the bottom of the upside down trash cans with a spray sealer to
prevent rust from collecting water in the now bottom channel of the trash
can.
7. I measured and found the middle of the upside down trash can and drilled a
small hole to attach the table round.
8. I did the same on the wood rounds before painting them. Just a pre-drill for
the screws.
9. Once the paint and sealer were dry I screwed the table top to the mesh
trash can and tightened a nut over the screw.
