Fire Pit to End Table

Just after the water fountain was complete I realized I didn’t have a place to set my coffee cup in the morning when I was sitting on the deck enjoying my new found gurgle and bubble. Being frugal I hunted the house for something I could use without having to run to Target.

I found my solution at the side of the house. This was my old metal bonfire tray. I cleaned it up, removed some of the rusting pieces and gave it a new coat of black spray paint. (My favorite redo medium!) After that I took an old piece of plywood I found in the garage scrap pile and received my first lesson with the skill saw. A coat of black paint on the plywood and I now have my outdoor coffee table.

  1. I love it. I miss those days in our old city where people would cast off old furniture and stuff. My kids called it "TRASH TO TREASURE" Tuesdays. we'd get up early, get a donut and go looking. I have a piece in my office that was a VCR wooden bookshelf. I took the old wooden pieces off a grill (the side parts) and they fit perfectly to make a top. The sliders on the VCR rack hold cd's perfectly and the table sits as an entry table into my office. Thanks for sharing this--I'm going to go dumpster diving tonigh!
