Before and After: Rustic Outdoor Dining Set

Before and After: Rustic Outdoor Dining Set

If you have ever come across an old table base, with no top, this before and after is one you'll want to bookmark for future reference.

I've seen a base like this before at a garage sale, but passed it by. Next time I find one, I might just have to snag it and try this project from DIY Diva. I love the way it turned out - kind of like rustic pie pieces. Definitely a cozy spot to have a glass of lemonade. Don't you think?

That  is such a cool idea! I especially like what you did with the carved pieces of wood for the table top. Where did you get the wood for it?

Wow, so interesting! It looks like it was a lot of work but came out so pretty!

You must purchase a table like that the next time you have the opportunity. The posibilities are endless. I have one sitting in the garage I bought last week. It will receive a mosiac treatment.

I also have three similar smaller tables. Trying to decide if I want to paint the bottom of the glass or replace the tops using some vintage 1960's VCT tiles that I have on hand. I have also considered placing vintage wallpaper under the glass to give the tables that unique appeal.

Decisions Decisions.

I love this look! Beautiful work.

However I wonder if what you put on the table (e.g. drinks, plates, etc.) placed on the table wobbles because of the space between the wooden pieces, or if it's level enough to be stable...

This is very interesting. Must have been a lot of work!
