Y’all saw the table we built for our home and in honor of the Pinterest Challenge earlier this week. It was worthy of its very own post, so here is the step-by-step on how we built this rustic dark X base table by hand in a custom size.
We were inspired by all five of these tables (links:1/2/3/4/5 ), but mostly by the dark stain and classic X base shape.
This weekend, I decided to tackle one of the 2012 Home Goals I set a few months ago, one of which is to pull together a conversation area on our balcony that overlooks the yard. Sadly, it’s sat there empty and neglected for too many years and I’m finally in the process of creating a conversation zone up there. Instead of a new purchase, I decided to be cheap and spruce up a set of old furniture that I already have to work with what I got!
Before I get to that, I’m proud to announce that this will be year three I’ve partnered with True Value as a member of the True Value Blog Squad, oh yeah!
Look for a bunch of projects in the coming months with the stuff I find on the shelves of my local store.
Yesterday, I headed down to my local True Value to grab some outdoor metallic spray paint I’ve used in the past, Rust-Oleum makes a great version for outdoor furniture in oil rubbed bronze.
If you’re looking to spruce up your old set, I’m tellin ya, spray paint is the way to go! I spray painted all of my outdoor furniture five years ago, and it’s held up well, but this particular set was in special need of some touch up love.
