So, as promised, I have a little tutorial on how to make the easiset, fastest and cheapest side table in the history of the world.
To refresh your memory, here's the finished product:
And a closer look:
First up, gather everything you need. Which turns out to be three things....
1. Wire fencing
2. Wire cutters
3. Round piece of wood.
Decide the circumfrence and height of the table that works best for your spot. Keep in mind that if the table is too small around it could be a little wobbly. We're going for sturdy!
Once you've decided how big the table will be, extend your mesurements by one section. You'll use the extra section to keep the table closed and support your top. Cut the fencing so there are pieces of wire sticking out that you can bend. Now, bend the fencing into your table base and then bend the extra wire around to secure the table, like this:
See how the wire is bent around to keep the entire frame closed?
Next, bend the excess wire at the top of the table inward in order to support the top.
It just so happens that my husband had hoarded a wine barrel top. It was the perfect size so I just slapped it on there. But Home Depot and Lowes both sell round pieces of wood that can be primed or stained. Just make sure that they're the right size for you table.
I loved the look of the table without the driftwood, but it's really cool jammed with the worn wood that's just laying around our property.
The final product.
So, so easy!
