I needed a side table for the settee on my deck and the plastic one I had was no longer cutting it! So I rummaged in the leftover wood pile and found what I needed to make a small table. This is made from a square of plywood for the top, 2 x 2's for the legs, and 1 x 4 for the sides. I got to play with the table saw to make this! Don't you just feel like you are super cool when you use the power tools? or is that just me?
I had some leftover green paint from another project and mixed some water and tile grout in with it to make my own version of chalk paint. The grout was pre-mixed rather than powder and that worked out just fine.
Here are some pictures of the texture it provided:
Yep, I have a thing for texture--- so you get lots of pictures of it. As the table is going to sit on my deck, I wasn't too worried about it being all nicely finished. The weather would shortly change that anyway.
Perfect little table to sit on my deck and hold a planter and a drink...
