I made two of these large pots into side tables for my patio.
Come along with me and I'll show you how. :)
I found these large French Anduze style pots at a local nursery, but I wasn't crazy about the color.
I primed them and then spray painted them Heirloom White.
I then used glaze and some brown paint to give them an aged look.
I bought pre-made round table tops at a home improvement store. My dad cut two circles out of wood to fit the inside of the tops of the pots. My dad then screwed the pieces together for me.
I then stained the tops and coated them with poly. They are on a covered patio so they don't get rained on. They do get dusty because it's windy and dusty here in the desert.
The stain I used is walnut Minwax.
Besides the tables looking looking cute.......
.............they are also good for storage.
I can just lift up the lid and pop stuff inside.
This was a very simple project. Thanks to my dad for cutting the wood for me!
