I already had a bag shells, but I purchased a bag of sand and a 24" glass top.
Seashell Outdoor Table!
I wanted a small table to go between the patio lounge chairs I upcycled. I had a 20" terra cotta pot that I painted yellow and a great idea! Here's what I did...
A terra cotta pot is very heavy. I wanted to be able to move it around without hurting myself...so I gathered pieces of Styrofoam and cardboard to fill the pot 2/3 up from top, this would keep the pot from being too heavy while still having it full.
I cut a circle from cardboard that fit pretty well on top. If you can fully seal off the top of the pot, you'll need less sand for this project.
Then I added the sand. I poured in enough so that it created a smooth, solid surface.
Then you just add your shells!
It is so beautiful....so easy to make...and is a wonderful memento of your happy times at the shore.
If you don't have any shells, you can purchase a bag for under $10 at Walmart. Check out more of my unique creations at: kelleysdiy.com thank you for looking
