DIY Garden Urn Turned Coffee Table

I took an antique cast-iron garden urn and filled it with a monochromatic assortment of bone & mother of pearl buttons and rhinestone jewelry, then topped it with glass for a unique industrial, yet pretty coffee table.

    Oh my gosh, how unique and creative! You really took this another creative step by adding the jewelry. This one is going to be pinned and saved! I love your whole room.

    Hey Mikey, I like it! I've often wanted to make a coffee table from an old urn, but never found a urn I liked that didn't cost an arm and a leg. I love your filling. Absolutely gorgeous!
  • Love how this turned out! The use of the rhinestone brooches makes it so special and sparkly! What else is fun to do is to run a cord out the drainage hole and add a light underneath some of the filling items. It would shine beautifully! Thank you so
